I was captivated by this book, and related to it in many ways. Until the last quarter, I even sort of hated how much of it really really rings true. But, it's beautifully written and, honestly, it's the afterward, written 25 years after its original publication, that made me love it. This is the author's eloquent argument against a bizarre medical education system. I love that someone has said Something. A shout against the wind?

It's been a while since I stayed up late reading in bed, until the wee hours of the morning, so I love it for that reason too.
