“A page turner” – Professor A M Martin

His writing is ‘in your face’, and his ‘asides’ contain a wealth of medicine, art, music and profiles of some famous and infamous people. His sense of humour lies somewhere between MARK TWAIN and SPIKE MILLIGAN…. A page turner which illustrates the adage: ‘It’s not the dog in the fight, It’s the fight in the dog.’……. The years as clinical student then qualified doctor from 1959 to the late ‘60s is a ‘MUST READ’ for today’s students and doctor, as he describes the dying days of hands on, eyes and ears wide open, experiential, non-disposable, low-tech medicine practiced by worn out juniors dominated by autocratic consultants.
