Synopsis: His life is truly an example to all of us -- not only for his devotion to patients and love of family, but also his understanding of the real values of life. -- SHHH JournalThe personal account of his struggles reveals his inspiration, dedication, and warmth. For all collections. -- Library JournalA remarkable autobiography. -- CHOICEHe portrays his patients -- including some amusing eccentrics -- vividly. -- Publishers WeeklyBorn almost totally deaf, Philip Zazove has spent his entire life beating the odds -- first by excelling in public schools during an era when most deaf children went to special schools, then by aspiring to become a medical doctor.Despite his stellar record at Northwestern University, Zazove was rejected by a host of medical schools. This only caused him to press harder, which won him acceptance at Rutgers University. He transferred to Washington University in St. Louis where, again against all advice, he decided to specialize in family practice. In vignettes of his patients, some amusing, others moving, he reveals the dedication and humanity that have made him a respected and well-loved doctor. His story will inspire all who read it.
