The most mundane events can quickly become life or death. At once riveting and precise, these stories are eye-opening accounts of what it means to be a doctor. Vincent Lam draws upon his insiderís perspective on the fears and frustrations of a world where challenges surge all around. Using scalpel-sharp prose, he delivers a shockingly realistic portrait of the medical profession. In the four stories included in this audiobook, William Johnston and Michael Scholar Jr. make Vincent Lamís characters thoroughly human with insightful detail, realistic dialogue, and expert narration.About the Author:
