Almost everyone has some experience of being misunderstood by doctors, and almost every doctor is haunted by memories of difficult relationships with patients. Dr. Peter Dorward explores the many ethical dilemmas that GPs must face every day in his book The Human Kind.
Dr. Gavin Francis has seen it all: the promising law student trapped under the spell of anorexia; the bodybuilder whose use of illegal steroids threatens his fertility, and the surprisingly upbeat woman growing a horn in the centre of her forehead. In Shapeshifters he draws on his patients’ bodily transformations, both welcome and unwelcome.
