"Every Doctor spoke to me deeply and personally ... as we face the challenges of 21st Century medical practice, I felt cared for, much like I do when visiting my personal family doctor. Every Doctor will speak to you as well."

Associate Professor Sandy Buchman, Family Physician Practising in Palliative Care, President-Elect of the Canadian Medical Association

"As implicit in the title, the book reaches out to every doctor from recent graduates to the experienced - general practitioner and specialist. The message is universal, timeless and challenging."

Emeritus Professor John Murtagh, Department of General Practice, School of Primary Health Care, Faculty of Medicine Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University, Australia

"Michael and Leanne are indeed the best family doctors to author Every Doctor because they have demonstrated in this book how much they understand about us as medical practitioners, as leaders and advocates, and about our journeys and our future. They share precious experience and offer precious advice."

Dr Donald Li (Hong Kong, China), President, World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA), 2018-2020

MEDIA REVIEWS

"As we immerse ourselves into this wonderful account of our work and challenges as doctors, and reflect upon our personal lives as well as our physical and mental health, we appreciate more and more that everyone should have a family doctor. Michael and Leanne are indeed the best family doctors to author Every Doctor because they have demonstrated in this book how much they understand about us as medical practitioners, as leaders and advocates, and about our journeys and our future. They share precious experience and offer precious advice."Dr Donald Li (Hong Kong, China), President, World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA), 2018-2020

"I am delighted that Drs Rowe and Kidd have written another golden book for doctors on mental well-being and cultural change. Once again, they have used their considerable expertise to hit the mark. It will join their first book on my bookshelf and I suggest other doctors do the same."

Dr Geoffrey Toogood, cardiologist, mental health advocate and founder of #crazysocks4docs

"Every Doctor spoke to me deeply and personally - listening to its wisdom, touching me in areas of meaning and significance in my life as a physician, medical leader and human being. Emphasizing how important it is to care for each other as we face the challenges of 21st Century medical practice, I felt cared for, much like I do when visiting my personal family doctor. Every Doctor will speak to you as well."

Associate Professor Sandy Buchman, Family Physician Practising in Palliative Care,

President-Elect of the Canadian Medical Association

"If you ever feel like giving up medicine - and all of us have those sorts of days - then this remarkable, courageous and joyful book is the one for you."

Dr Iona Heath CBE, President, Royal College of General Practitioners (2009-2012)

"Congratulations to the respected authors in another vital string to their bows to support us doctor colleagues on how to not ignore ourselves.

Doctors' own health continues to gain priority globally recognising the most important tool in our workplace is the Doctor. The World Medical Association's `modern Hippocratic Oath', the Declaration of Geneva, now recognises this.

This book is a must to take time out of the busy unrelenting day to address and plan and ACT to keep that instrument sharp! Physician heal thy self is not enough."

Dr Mukesh Haikerwal AC, President of the Australian Medical Association (2005-2007) and

Chair of the Council of the World Medical Association (2011-2015)

"Sometimes we read to escape from the demands of our daily lives - and sometimes we read in order to refresh our practice; to gain renewed understanding and take new opportunities. This book will challenge, question and support us to be more aware of both the risks we run as doctors, and how we can deal with them effectively and fruitfully. Read it alone, or with colleagues, and then discuss - it will be worth it."

Professor Amanda Howe OBE, President, World Organisation of Family Doctors (WONCA), 2016-2018

"With intelligence and keen insight based on extensive clinical, organisational and life experience, Drs Leanne Rowe and Michael Kidd deliver a powerful wake-up call to doctors. Writing with warmth and empathy but no holds barred, they ask us to 'get our own house in order' for the benefit of all involved. I believe that doctors throughout the world will appreciate their efforts and resonate with the quality and character of the work."

Professor David Bennett, Senior Staff Specialist in Adolescent Medicine,

Sydney Children's Hospital Network, Australia

"As implicit in the title the book reaches out to every doctor from recent graduates to the experienced -general practitioner and specialist. The message is universal, timeless and challenging."

Emeritus Professor John Murtagh, Department of General Practice, School of Primary Health Care, Faculty of Medicine Nursing and Health Sciences, Monash University, Australia
