Through engaging narratives of illness, medical work, and nursing in which people choose to act in ways that affirm their humanity, "The Renewal of Generosity" depicts the transformation of demoralized medicine into caring relationships through generosity - generosity towards both others and oneself. Arthur Frank demonstrates how generosity is renewed through dialogue, and he also distinguishes authentic dialogue from mere talk. For Frank, medicine is the face-to-face encounter that comes before and after pharmaceuticals, surgeries, and diagnostics. His is a book for people on both sides of the medical encounter who want to offer more to those they meet and who want a more enriching experience for themselves. A work of enormous grace and compassion. "The Renewal of Generosity" expands our vision of illness and healing.
