I started reading this during my intern year and couldn't get past the second chapter, I found it insulting and unrealistic but I've never experienced anything like that before. I picked it up again in my third year residency and absolutely loved it. I highly recommend anybody in medicine to read it because there are still institutions out there very much like this.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would, but only to doctor friends and I would try to manage their expectations.
If you’ve listened to books by Samuel Shem before, how does this one compare?
Which character – as performed by Sean Runnette – was your favorite?
Fats. Good humor, good advice to main character.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
Any additional comments?
I was a little surprised about the amount of sex in this book. Either I'm really boring or it was a different time in the 70s. If I tried to have sex with as many nurses as what goes on in this book I would have been fired with maybe a lawsuit. Different times....
I don't know if it enhanced the story either.
