The author is clearly a brilliant man, cut down by cancer right about the time his brilliant career should have soared into overdrive. I liked parts of the book (mostly observations about how doctors themselves act and feel; did you know that most doctors opt not to donate their bodies to research?) but found other parts overly philosophical and quite probably above my comprehension. Still, it is a fast read and one that makes the reader understand how random, devestating, and equalizing illness is.
