Summary
Doctor and medical columnist John Launer has written on the practice and teaching of medicine for many years. Now, more than fifty of his essays have been collected in How Not to Be A Doctor. Taken together, they set out an argument that being a doctor--a real doctor--should mean being able to draw on every aspect of yourself, your interests, and your experiences, however remote these may seem from the medical task of the moment
