As someone whose brother just completed medical school in the last 12 months, I find it fascinating how immediate the transition from student to doctor occurs. He’s 27 years old and performing ridiculous procedures every day.
I picked up this book in part because of the brilliant title, and also because I love a good medical story. Matt McCarthy does not disappoint, as he shares the many highs and lows of his intern year of residency. McCarthy is a great storyteller, and while I have my doubts that it is all true, I enjoyed the read.
I would love to hear a “real” doctor’s take on all this. Oh wait… I know one.
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for this review.
