2004 Writers Notes Books Award Notable

Like many of this year's entries, this book was written with a point of view and a desire to convince. However, when one subtracts the author's motives from the book, what's left stands firmly on its own feet. The protagonist is the sort of Norman Rockwell doctor that we want to remember from childhood, that we want to find for ourselves. His quest to balance the demands of his vocation, his life, and the lives of those near to him, while also fending off the encroaching HMO, made for a readable and absorbing story.

A human drama of corporate machinery

Written by William T. Close (an American doctor who once served as the personal physician to the President of Congo), Subversion Of Trust is an inhernetly interesting novel about a rural doctor who dares to challenge the corporate greed and steamrolled values of an aggressively for-profit HMO. A human drama of corporate machinery and the human lives it chews up and spits out, as well as heroism, daring, and the will to take a stand, Subversion Of Trust is first-rate reading with very real and disturbing implications for the immediate health-care future of America.

A book every doctor, nurse and patient should read.

WHO HASN'T BEEN A PATIENT? WHO DOESN'T WANT TO BE TREATED WITH UNCONDITIONAL CARE AND COMPASSION? Dr. Close's book allows you to look inside a small town doctor's life and experience what a true medical practice is and can be.In this book we get to look at doctors who truly serve and care for their friends. Doctors making a difference in their lives, not only when they have the small aches and pains but when life is on the line or life is coming to an end. In "Subversion of Trust" we get to see how doctors can make a difference with true compassion and caring for their fellow man. Doctors wanting to do what they have been trained to do, love to do, but sometimes are unable to do because of the "system".The story is exciting, enjoyable and moves you into a heartfelt connection for Jenny, Old Doc and the other characters as they struggle to find themselves and maintain what they have in the small towns of Montana.I'm sure you will be moved, as I was, by what can and does take place in remote medical areas by true doctors and nurses that practice what they preach.
