Book Update: Labor Day Release Will Have New Title

My second book in the series based on my blog had a working title of Progress Notes. I pictured the bulk of its chapters/essays would be equal parts my personal and other doctors’ observations, circumstances and reflections. But as I went through my archives, I saw many essays with a magazine article flavor (indeed republished quite widely) that seemed logical to include. They have themes like how to be both a more effective and a more healing doctor and how not to get burned out in your pursuit of that ideal.

I have decided the new title will be A Country Doctor Writes: IN PRACTICE – Starting, Growing and Staying in the Medical Profession. It will be about twenty pages longer than CONDITIONS and priced the same. For that book, too, I will offer bulk purchasing of multiples of 10 paperback books for the typical wholesale price of $10 each.

My hope is that both CONDITIONS and IN PRACTICE will be of interest to students from pre-med through medical school, to residents and also practicing physicians. Most of us, from time to time, end up looking for reading material to help us keep the focus and faith in our chosen professions, where so many distractions now cloud our vision of why we are doing what we set out to do.

Hence, IN PRACTICE Available on or shortly after Labor Day.
