I have mixed feelings about this book. Like another particular book I read some years ago, the content is very interesting but the way it is presented is lacking. There are lots of good stories in this book but they seemed disconnected. There were lots of references to patients in past books made it seem not so fresh but he did discuss from a different perspective. It ended rather than concluded, needed a wrap-up chapter. I wonder if the expanded edition resolves any of these issues.
