by Frederic A. Mendelsohn
In his very readable memoir, Dr. Frederic Mendelsohn shares a collection of stories from his experiences as a practicing Neurosurgeon. He educates on a variety of illnesses and disorders, as he entertains with a keen sense and understanding of human nature.
Dr. Mendelsohn shows us through his stories the ability of the body and mind to heal itself. He shares with us how the human spirit can triumph over desperate situations given the proper help and attention.
It is interesting that Dr. Mendelsohn first began as a music student. He attributes this to his creative thinking as a physician, particularly a neurosurgeon. He retains his love of the arts as a professional artist, in addition to his current practice and medical teaching position.
This is a very interesting and educational book. It is ultimately a tribute to the human spirit and the wonderful physicians who treat and nurture it. Thank you, Dr. Mendelsohn.
