    Dr. Jerome Groopman also wrote a book called Second Opinions. I'd like to read something by someone else.

    I'm ready when you all are for the next read. I'm sure there are other books about this topic.

    I also have some journals of my journeys, past and some present at:
    http://karasnewblog2008.blogspot.com/ and http://icnkaralynn.blogspot.com/

    Most of my Journaling now is currently on Facebook. These are old and my ICN Patient story is very old and outdated.

      If the topic is, communications between patients and doctors, here are a few possibilities. These are all on or close to this topic, all well-reviewed, and all available at Amazon. I'm posting the links, so you guys will have something to go by besides the titles. I would happily read any or all of these, so maybe Kara or someone else would like to make a choice.

      Or, if anyone has an idea of their own, not from my list, feel free to propose that too!

        BTW, Amy, knock that off!! It's sweet how you always think so well of your friends, but considering the number of doctors I've seen who treated me like a complete moron, I seriously doubt that they are overwhelmed or intimidated by me, LOL. It's more like, they prefer patients who fit neatly into categories, and become very frustrated if they don't have the answer to your problem. So, as Dr. Groopman says, some doctors take this frustration out on their patients.

        When you read it, please chime in with your thoughts as well. I know I am eager to hear what you take away from it, and the others probably are as well (and don't even think about using that "intimidating intelligence" nonsense again, girlfriend, or I'll have to come out to KY and smack you upside the head! )

              We have a winner!

              OK, Beside Manners it is! Here is the link for the book on Amazon.

              http://www.amazon.com/Bedside-Manner...619388-8920036

              Naturally you can buy it wherever you like, but you can get the author's name and ISBN from Amazon in any case.

              I'm ordering my copy today... everyone is welcome to join in!
