Acerca de


The celebrated bestselling author of Toscanini's Fumble and Newton's Madness regales readers with 27 gripping, sometimes bizarre stories that cut to the heart of medical ethics. Dr. Klawans takes to task the entire structure of modern medicine, questioning what it does to us as human beings. He covers hero-worship of doctors, dying at the hospital instead of at home among familiar faces, and more.

From Library Journal:

Klawans (neurology, Rush Univ., Chicago) increases his series of books based upon his professional experiences ( Trials of an Expert Witness , LJ 3/15/91; Newton's Madness: Further Tales of Clinical Neurology , HarperCollins, 1990; and Toscanini's Fumble and Other Tales of Clinical Neurology , Contemporary Bks., 1988). Here, he recounts such philosophical and ethical dilemmas as treating an obviously dying patient, risking serum hepatitis from blood transfusions for pregnant women, dealing with overprotective family members, misdiagnosing ailments, confronting the environment in which death occurs (in hospitals instead of at home), removing life support systems for comatose patients, and more. Klawans is again the masterful and compassionate storyteller, and his book is interesting, thought-provoking, and entertaining. A medical dictionary may be necessary for those not versed in medical language. Recommended for most public and academic libraries; appropriate as a reader in or where philosophy or medical ethics classes are taught.
