Reviews

All agree there is a crisis in health care, but this book looks behind the headlines and tots up the human cost of a flawed system. Written with perceptive sympathy for the wounded healer, it is necessary reading for both doctors and patients. -- Hilary Mantel
With a compassionate eye for detail and a deep understanding of just how the systems we train and practice in as doctors can fail us as human beings, Caroline Elton offers a crucial and timely reminder that doctors are Also Human. -- Atul Gawande, author of Being Mortal
This furious dispatch from the front line of the hospital system argues we must care for our medics more... a book that may have found its popular moment. -- Helen Rumbelow * The Times, 'Book of the Week' *
Caroline Elton is an occupational psychologist who has worked with medics for more than 20 years. She is uniquely qualified to comment... I'd be surprised if anyone who reads it will ever look at doctors in the same light again. -- Decca Aitkenhead * Guardian *
Also Human describes, through a series of case histories... the emotional and psychological problems that doctors can face. The interesting question... is how doctors overcome such feelings and carry on working, despite often having to witness, and sometimes cause, terrible suffering for our patients. At the heart of this book is the problem of how emotional resilience can be identified in prospective doctors and strengthened in practising doctors. We are fallible human beings, not omniscient gods. -- Henry Marsh * Sunday Times *
