Praise

“Taut, vivid prose. . . . She writes for a lay audience with a practiced hand.” —New York Times

“Here is a book that is at once sad and joyful, frightening and thought-provoking.  In her lucid and passionate explanations of the important role that emotions play in the practice of medicine and in healing and health, Danielle Ofri tells stories of great importance to both doctors and patients.” —Perri Klass, author of Treatment Kind and Fair: Letters to a Young Doctor

“An invaluable guide for doctors and patients on how to ‘recognize and navigate the emotional subtexts’ of the doctor-patient relationship.” —Kirkus Reviews

“Yet her insightful and invigorating book makes the case that it’s better for patients if a physician’s emotional compass-needle points in a positive direction.” —Booklist (starred review)

“Rich and deeply insightful. . . . A fascinating journey into the heart and mind of a physician struggling to do the best for her patients while navigating an imperfect health care system.” —Boston Globe

“With grace, courage, humility, and compassion, Bellevue Hospital physician Ofri  gives voice and color to the heartbreak, stress, and joy that attends medical practice.” —Library Journal
