You may have already come across this in your travels but for those who haven't it may be an interesting read; the review certainly was.

Dr. Coulehan recommends this book to physicians and other health proffesionals. He converys the uncomfortable revealing truths that are at the heart of Melissa's book: abandonment and betrayal.

He writes: "Melissa encounters numerous doctors who hold the reigns of authority, yet live in a different world. Some fail to listen, others betray and abandon her...Physicians often have trouble empathizing with patients who threaten the comfortable belief that "objective" categories and numbers accurately reflect patient experience."

Has anyone read "Travels with the Wolf"?

I just might order it.

Stay Warm

Hi Hailee,

We have added that book to our bookstore.

 

(Update: we have discontinued our bookstore but the book is available on Amazon.)

It sounds interesting!

Hailee,
Sounds like a very interesting book. Sounds like one that not only we should all read, but maybe our healthcare providers as well. Dr. Coulehan certainly gave a very honest review.
Thanks!
Big Hugs,
