Annotation: Advancing from knowledge to wisdom, a physician learns that practicing medicine goes beyond anatomy and technology. The human element must never be ignored as patient and physician together battle sickness and disease. Cassell offers insights into how the best healers involve the body, heart, and soul of their patients. Shattering the illusion of the physician's omnipotence, the author demonstrates how both doctor and patient can overcome fear and accept the inevitability of death.
