How can a doctor best understand the emotions and behaviour of his or her patients? An effective and deeply satisfying route is through an appreciation of literature and the profound understanding its authors have of the human predicament. In this extraordinary and enlightening volume general practitioner John Salinsky guides the reader through some of the world's finest works. In each chapter he describes a classic novel short story play or poem revealing them to be easily accessible and enjoyable. He shows how parallels can be drawn between characters in literature and in the consulting room. Developed from his long-running column in the journal Education for Primary Care (formerly Education in General Practice) Dr Salinsky's book gives doctors a new perspective on the doctor-patient relationship and provides unique support to communication skills.

'The examples given in this guide bring the whole practice-based planning process to life and show how learning in teams and sharing experience can add to the quality of care provided. This must be one of the objectives of all professional groups and if, at the same time, it enhances professional roles and is associated with personal development then it is of all-round benefit. This guide shows how it can be done, and how such benefits can be achieved.' Kenneth Calman, in the Foreword
