     "This is an excellent book. It informs the reader about the medical and historical facts surrounding various diseases, but more importantly, it focuses on the patient`s experience of each disease as it is suffered, diagnosed, and treated. The perspective of the person experiencing the disease is quite remarkable and powerfully drawn in these stories." -  James Childress, Edwin B. Kyle professor of religious studies and professor of medical education at the University of Virginia.
