My Amazon Review of “The Good Doctor: A Father, A Son, and the Evolution of Medical Ethics,” by Barron H. Lerner.
I began reading this book with an interest about the cultural shifts in thinking on medical ethics in our country over the past several decades. Though this book was exceptionally enlightening on this topic, I was surprised to walk away with so much more. It is rare for someone to have such vast access to another physician’s raw thoughts and emotions as Dr. Lerner had with his father’s memoirs. As a reader of this book, I am grateful and better for it. I could not help but be more inspired to be a better physician to my patients and a better son to my parents after I read this book.
