This is nothing like Pauline Chen’s Final Exam. I probably could learn a lot from this book, but it’s just not all that engaging. The author may like to write, but she’s not a good writer.
One thing I have to wonder: am I the only one who’s aware of the dark side of being a doctor? It seems obvious that when you’re becoming a doctor you’re not going to be able to cure everyone – you’re going to lose some patients. It is one reason I didn’t want to become a doctor. Hm, maybe I am smart (in a way) after all.
