Beschreibung

Presents a behind-the-curtain look at doctoring in all its triumphs and failures in an attempt to answer a very simple question: What does a doctor do?

Object Lessons is a series of short, beautifully designed books about the hidden lives of ordinary things.A 3-year-old asks her physician father about his job, and his inability to provide a succinct and accurate answer inspires a critical look at the profession of modern medicine.In sorting through how patients, insurance companies, advertising agencies, filmmakers, and comedians misconstrue a doctor's role, Andrew Bomback, M.D., realizes that even doctors struggle to define their profession. As the author attempts to unravel how much of doctoring is role-playing, artifice, and bluffing, he examines the career of his father, a legendary pediatrician on the verge of retirement, and the health of his infant son, who is suffering from a vague assortment of gastrointestinal symptoms.At turns serious, comedic, analytical, and confessional, Doctor offers an unflinching look at what it means to be a physician today.Object Lessons is published in partnership with an essay series in The Atlantic.

A disarming, candid, precise meditation on the inescapable role that 'complication' or 'luck'otherwise known as 'fate'plays in the life of any doctor or patient or, indeed, any human.
