Good stuff..

I always judge a book to see how much of the story I remember after putting it down. In her style of writing, I found myself laughing and appreciating her perspective on the medical community and patients. Written in an easy going style, she leads the readers through visual descriptions of the events occurring around her. I would have liked to have seen more dialogue to better gain an insight into the author. Very easy to read.

Captivating writing style, interesting and provocative.

Dr. Dasgupta puts her heart in the book to tell a story that is simultaneously funny, sad, and continuously provocative. While writing an autobiography, she reveals the politics of modern medical teaching, racism, and feminism. Her natural writing style makes you feel like she's sitting next to you telling the story - you won't put the book down till she's done!
