A lively memoir from a surgeon who has seen war, death, and sorrow-but always retains his sense of humor. This anecdotal memoir comes from a surgeon who, from the harrowing account of the crossing of the River Rapido in World War II to the tale of a man with a poker in a very inconvenient place, reveals himself to be a man of wit and compassion as well as a skillful storyteller. With reflections on subjects including the physiology of courage, A Doctor of Sorts is a poignant and often entertaining read for anyone interested in medicine-or simply the human condition.
