The Renewal of Generosity: Illness, Medicine, and How to Live

The Renewal of Generosity: Illness, Medicine, and How to Live Lowest new price: $19.70
Lowest used price: $8.94
List price: $26.00
Author: Arthur W. Frank
Brand: Arthur W Frank

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.

"This reflection is starkly honest and never pedantic or condescending. . . . Through a rich telling of stories and reflection on them, Frank conducts a complex symphony of ideas about medicine with writing from a wide range of authors that models how readers might enact and experience the complex, subtle meaning of generosity and gratitude in their own practices. . . . Physicians should rush to read this book, and I hope that patients will join them."—George J. Agich, New England Journal of Medicine

Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor

Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor Lowest new price: $14.07
Lowest used price: $1.99
List price: $18.95
Author: James A. Feinstein
Brand: Brand: iUniverse Star, Inc.

Most people will, at some point or another, either find themselves dressed in a tiny hospital gown or staring at someone else dressed in a tiny hospital gown. Whether from the perspective of a patient, a family member, or a medical professional, we all have a significant stake in the process of medical education. While numerous memoirs recount physicians' grueling experiences during residency, few focus on the even more formative portion of medical training: the third year of medical school-the clinical year. Short White Coat: Lessons from Patients on Becoming a Doctor is the disarmingly honest, yet endearing and sometimes funny account of a medical student's humbling initiation into the world of patient care.

Written during his third year of medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, James Feinstein's Short White Coat uses a series of engaging narrative essays to illustrate the universal life lessons that his very first patients teach him. He gracefully examines some of the most common issues and feelings that medical students encounter while learning how to meet, talk with, touch, and care for their patients. Along the way, he learns from his own mistakes before discovering the answer to the question that plagues every medical student: "Do I have what it takes to become a doctor?"

Supplement to Final Exit

Supplement to Final Exit Lowest new price: $51.90
Lowest used price: $4.00
Author: Derek Humphry
Brand: Brand: Ergo

This little book is a supplement, or an 'add-on' to the main volume "Final Exit: The Practicalities of Self-Deliverance and Assisted Suicide for the Dying". It does not replace what has become the standard textbook on euthanasia, just brings it up to date politically, legally, and ethically.

Of considerable interest to readers will be the explicit chapter on how to take one's life with HELIUM GAS if suffering unbearbly at the end of life. This is a new development, and made important by the clamp-down by all Western governments on the prescribing of barbiturates by doctors.

Reenvisioning Psychology: Moral Dimensions of Theory and Practice

Reenvisioning Psychology: Moral Dimensions of Theory and Practice Lowest new price: $81.30
Lowest used price: $20.99
List price: $52.00
Author: Frank C. Richardson
Brand: Jossey-Bass

In the twentieth century, the practice of psychology has usually been based on a scientific or objective theory of human behavior. Today, an influential countermovement, often called social constructionism, argues that there is no basis for our beliefs or values beyond the swirl of meanings and practices in a particular community or era. Re-envisioning Psychology examines the increasing dissatisfaction with both scientific and social constructionist viewpoints and presents a sweeping new vision of theory and practice in psychology.

"Re-envisioning Psychology is a breath of fresh air, a clear and resounding voice that provides an intellectual and moral direction that, if heeded and built upon, could lead psychology out of the confusion and political collusion in which it is currently mired. Richardson, Fowers, and Guignon have imaginatively applied interpretive and dialogic concepts to the most troubling aspects of theory and practice. If psychology is going to be saved from its own worst tAndencies, this book will be an indispensable element in its turning."
--Philip Cushman, associate professor, California School of Professional Psychology and author of Constructing the Self, Constructing America: A Cultural History of Psychotherapy
