of both erudition and self-examination. Mr. Parks neither hesitates to let us know about his pains, embarrassment and discomforts nor allows us to doubt his intellectual prowess and depth of learning. I see the book's main value in encouraging personal responsibility when dealing with medical problems, and taking the views and recommendations of medical professionals with somthing more than a grain of salt.
I find Tim Parks' use of language very convincing and his story captivating. I thoroughly enjoyed this read. So much so that after finishing the paper-back, I decided this is a book I always want to have with me and bought the Kindle version.
somit muessen die leser selbst schauen, ob ihnen dieses buch gefaellt, mich ueberzeugte der verfasser schon in einem interview beim niederlaendischen fernsehen mit seinem witz, seiner ironie, seine erfahrung mit dem thema.
