Description
This is an intriguing and beautifully written medical memoir from the author of the National Book Award winners The Lives of a Cell and The Medusa and the Snail. Lewis Thomas observes the evolution of medicine in the 20th century, from the time of his father, a general practitioner who made house calls and dispensed more in the way of touch and care than actual cures, through his own experience as president of the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Thomas chronicles his training in Boston and New York, his war career in the South Pacific, his most impassioned research projects, his work as an administrator in hospitals and medical schools, and even his experiences as a patient.
