Have you ever doubted your doctor and not follow their advice? If yes, then this is the book that you have to read. It’s about stories of doctor-patient relationship, different unimaginable situations doctors face, their failures and successes and a lot more that makes us aware about our rights and duties as patients and give us a reason for why this relationship isn’t a one way street.
The book has stories 34 stories, each story encounters with the greatest and toughest moments of doctors from around the globe; the name of the patients in each stories has been changed. The title is perfect and cover is simple and classy. The language of the book is simple but it has some medical terms, which end up enhancing my vocabulary. At the end of each story, a ‘Do You Know’ section is there, which is informative and helpful.

Narration is vivid. In some stories, sometimes to make a concept clear and sometimes to show patient’s vision, some visuals are drawn by author Aparna; which I believe is a great idea. Also, at the end of the book, there’s a section dedicated to the rights, a patient and a doctor have; which make this book a must read for all.
This book is needed, looking at the current scenario of a doctor-patient relationship. Due to some who fail this profession, we should not let the whole industry suffer. The authors have done a great job in conveying this message with the help of this book. Thanks to SMA Reviews for the book, I loved it, and I recommend this book to all; everybody should read it once.
