Personal Opinion:

Believe it or not, I hate giving low ratings to books I read. I have previously read a lot of wonderful memoirs and stories by other doctors turned writers and have really enjoyed them greatly. This book though, not so much, I'm afraid. While I appreciated the facts that the author has provided about body as well as his own brand of preaching, I was very confused as to what tone or focus of the book is: is it a memoir? Is it a book designed for future medical students as to what they are getting into if they decide to do correctional medicine? Because I couldn't really understand the focus of the book, I was left feeling frustrated. I also feel that the book needs pictures or something when medical labeling begins because I couldn't really visualize where certain muscles were or how they worked. I would say that for a lay reader who has little to no experience with medicine, I might not recommend the book, but for someone more advanced and who has familiarity with medicine and how it works, perhaps this book will be worthwhile.
