    Description
    Tongue in cheek, the doctor draws from his quarter century of experience, a cocktail of thoughts and emotions aimed at the moments of truth in a doctor s life. A remarkably candid book, it looks at the aspirations that lead individuals to enter this field, the medical education, the profession of medicine in recent years, the attitudes of patients towards treatment and the doctors, and, importantly, the increasing role of commercial motives in shaping all of this. Very boldly stepping outside himself, Kapoor strikes an excellent balance between describing his own career development objectively and relating it to the larger medical and ethical issues that are adversely affecting the field. The discourse is built up gradually, beginning with an insightful insider s look at the behavior of doctors, patients and society at large through some hilarious examples gleaned from the author s own experience. Even as one enjoys a hearty laugh over some of the absurd situations portrayed, one begins to see how many of these, far from being just funny stories, are symptomatic of a larger irony: the medical profession, the profession of healing, is itself in many ways affected by a deep malaise. The ill patient, Mr. A P Dun, renamed Anuspain Dungsting by his friends owing to his ailment, recounts in his endearing desi style his experiences of different doctors. Power games spice us the int+H80eractions of both, the doctors and the patients. There is one God inside the clinic and the other one obviously is above us! An honest assessment for professionals and laymen alike of a vital sector, written with humility and a genuine social conscience.

    In conversation with Dr.Manoj Kapoor

    The book, according to the author, "Has covered just the tip of the iceberg."
    The book is a voice of concern that raises issues yet unanswered. The need for generic-life-saving drugs has escalated. But due to patenting of the drugs it becomes increasingly difficult for native pharmaceuticals to market the 'same composition' drugs, with the doctors recommending expensive drugs. The book is humorous and slick with sarcasm and puns.

    Awesome Read for Medicos

    amazing connect with the earthen realities of practice of medicine in India/
    a must read for especially all the young medico, from a long term practioner of medicine.

    though i would wonder how much it is able to strike a chord with a normal non-medico, tutored by the media and public perceptions to dis-like and mis-trust the narrative of medical fraternity.
