don't waste either your credit or your money

I thought this might have been a nice anecdotal listen,,, well it gave anecdotes, in the smugest, most depressing way possible. Some of which never had a conclusion satisfactory or otherwise. This doctor is soooo pleased with himself, it made me angry. I have down loaded a number of books, mostly really good, but not this one, it was DREADFUL. If you want to really depress yourself get it, if you want a laugh.. or even a wry smile FORGET IT

Interesting read

I think some of the other reviews have been a bit unfair about this book. It offers an interesting insight into the real life of a GP. Some of the stories require a strong stomach, but most are enlightening and some really moving.
