Rezensionen
"This book explores how our interactions with patients both help and hinder the delivery of healthcare. It is a philosophical book that seeks to balance evidence-based medicine with the need to listen and understand the patient through narrative medicine. ... This is a book for thinkers in medicine and linguistics, caretakers of patients, all medical personnel, and clinicians at all levels of expertise and specialization." (Vincent F Carr, Doody's Book Reviews, April 12, 2019)
