For the third Friday in July, we will discuss Karen's pick, Ice Bound: A doctor's Incredible Battle for Survival at the South Pole , by Jerri Nielsen. We have seen this on CNN. This is the true story of a Doctor who self administered a biopsy, found a cancerous lump in her breast and administered chemotherapy to herself while stuck in the south pole. Karen says there is more to the book. There a bit of family drama going on.
In August we will discuss Kathy's pick, We Beat The Street: How a Friendship Pact Led to Success by Sampson Davis et al. We have seen this on TV too. Oprah featured these three young men who had made a pact to leave the poverty of their New Jersey neighborhood to attend medical school and they succeeded.
Wow! I am just realizing we selected two non-fiction books about Doctors.
