How can a doctor best understand the emotions and behaviour of his or her patients? An effective and deeply satisfying route is through an appreciation of literature and the profound understanding its authors have of the human predicament. In this extraordinary and enlightening volume general practitioner John Salinsky guides the reader through some of the world's finest works. In each chapter he describes a classic novel short story play or poem revealing them to be easily accessible and enjoyable. He shows how parallels can be drawn between characters in literature and in the consulting room. Developed from his long-running column in the journal Education for Primary Care (formerly Education in General Practice) Dr Salinsky's book gives doctors a new perspective on the doctor-patient relationship and provides unique support to communication skills.
