Reviews

"What he writes is important, and he does so in an elegant, engaging fashion. This is a moving, deeply humane book." - Los Angeles Review of Books
"This mininarrative, packed with complex ideas translated into easily accessible language and an engaging style, leaves the readers time to ponder the author's ideas at greater length, and the result is a fascinating and illuminating trek through a beautiful mind. A splendid exploration of how medicine might be transformed."--Kirkus (starred)
"The prose is lovely, often witty, always clear.... a fast and informative read."--Booklist
