"A delightful and insightful look at human beings on our planet from 1941 through our current era--leaving one wondering about what we will do next--continue to align against one another or find a way to join together in a world where each and every person matters. Thank you Marc, my co-presenter on The Poor Peoples Campaign at Rossmoor (2019).) --Peg Miller, PT, Certified Drug and Alcohol Counselor and Somatic Psychotherapist. Founder of the first Early Intervention Program in New York City (1969); developer of the Women's Program at Options Recovery Services In Berkeley, (1999)


"The years from 1961-1975, aka "The Sixties", were among the most turbulent and dramatic periods in U.S. history. The young radicals who challenged the stifling political, cultural and sexual norms of that day didn't win "The Revolution", but they did make a lasting impact. We need more of them to share their stories before they are all gone. In Deja Vu with Quixotic Delusions of Grandeur, Marc Sapir steps up to the task as he narrates the 80 plus years of a radical life well lived as an activist and a doctor who faithfully served his working-class patients for decades...Deja Vu is a reminder of the joys and the travails of being a long-distance runner in the struggle for a better world." --John Tarleton, Editor, The Indypendent Newspaper, New York City


"Commitment to making this a better world is in short supply today; a lifelong commitment translated into action is rare. In Deja Vu with Quixotic Delusions of Grandeur, Marc Sapir, MD, shares with the reader his life as a physician and social activist committed to healing the individual and the world. The book is sprinkled with engaging side stories that makes it a reading pleasure. At the same time, it is an enduring and inspiring argument for healing a tormented world." --John Swartzberg, MD, FACP, Clinical Professor, Emeritus Professor, School of Public Health, Division of Infectious Diseases & Vaccinology and Chair, Editorial Board, UC Berkeley Wellness Letter


"A whirlwind of thoughts and experiences, from medical work to political dissidence to half a century of encounters with both prominent and everyday people. Among many other things, I was struck by his portrait of Cesar Chavez as a human being, with flaws and virtues. Worth a read." - Bob Egelko, journalist.
