MEDIA REVIEWS
The text is chock full of the thoughts of some of America's leading experts on the caring side of health care. This book should be read by any health care professional with an interest in this dimension of health care and is a must read for the medical community. A marvelous text. -- Joseph A. LiebermanIII, M.D.M.P.H. * Journal of the American Medical Association *
On the whole, this volume deepens our understanding and appreciation of the importance of caring for all who are in need of personal attention and assistance when ill and disabled. The contributors seem to have given much thought to their chapters, weaving together personal stories, clinical experiences, research findings, and proposals for change. -- Else M. Kiefer * Health Progress *
A remarkable broad and well-integrated package of philosophy and fact, a valuable and compact resource for health care professionals, as well as legislators and social scientists. -- John A. Benson, Jr., M.D. * Pharos *
