She said she learned to dampen her emotional involvement in patients to an extent, but she still cares about them and puts a lot of time and effort into them more than most doctors do. ONe of the best books of this type I've read in a long time This was a great book to fully understand what an infectious disease doctor goes through at work from day to day.
I was unaware of the danger of not having had chicken pox as a child The job This was a great book to fully understand what an infectious disease doctor goes through at work from day to day. The job of an ID doctor reminds me of a detective and the author compares it the same way; you take into consideration the symptoms, life history of the person, and vitals and then decide which "critters" could be causing the problem.
Apr 11, liz rated it did not like it. As a physician assistant with extensive experience treating patients with infectious diseases, I was excited to read this book. Unfortunately, Dr. N incorrectly called my profession "physician's assistant" and then went on to use extremely derogatory language to describe a patient with a history of substance abuse, I had to stop reading. This may be an amazing book with many jaw dropping stories of rarely seen diseases and Dr. Nagami may be a very skilled physician but I quickly realized her way As a physician assistant with extensive experience treating patients with infectious diseases, I was excited to read this book.
Nagami may be a very skilled physician but I quickly realized her way of approaching patients and mine are very different. Jul 29, Katelyn rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: pre-meds. Shelves: nonfiction , science. This is a really cool book written by Dr.
Paula Nagami, who is an infectious disease specialist in California. This book was one of the things that really got me into wanting to go to med school. I think anyone who's pre-med would particularly enjoy it, but others would probably find it interesting, too. But be warned.. You will definitely start thinking about that overseas trip and all the parasites that you may have possibly picked up.
Not that I did that Medical writing can be a little tricky to get in all the details and not make it overly technical. This book, while interesting was a little technical detail heavy and finesse lacking. I still liked it though. How could you not with a title like that? Aug 10, Lou Lindsley rated it really liked it. For those of you in love with shows such as Monsters Inside Me or House, this is the book for you. It is a book that shows both how resilient the human body is as well as how fragile it is. I give four stars because there were a few areas that got a little tedious, so I skimmed.
Other than that, it is a great way to become scared of everything from chickenpox Nov 27, Anna Engel rated it really liked it. I love medical case reports and I love reading about weird medical conditions. I guess I live vicariously through the doctors. Nagami is a good writer and engages the reader well--with more than just gruesome descriptions.

She describes the work she does, the people she meets, the relationships she forms, and the sometimes heartbreaking results. Since healthcare and who pays for what is so much in the news right now, I can't help but feel compassion for the unimaginable expense these familie I love medical case reports and I love reading about weird medical conditions. Since healthcare and who pays for what is so much in the news right now, I can't help but feel compassion for the unimaginable expense these families likely incurred from these treatments.
Weeks in the hospital, non-generic medications, specialist visits, etc. It adds up. Thank you to Dr. Nagami and her colleagues, for doing the work that you do. Dec 08, Sam rated it it was amazing Shelves: medicine. I love books like this. It was fascinating and so medical, and I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of it. I don't get a chance to see these pathogens very often, and I get a little thrill when Dr.
Nagami wrote about putting a patient on a "respirator," because that's my speciality. I have a couple of other books by her, and I look forward reading them. Aug 06, Liana Mathias rated it liked it. Interesting read and important for anyone who questions vaccination against the supposedly benign diseases.
Jul 27, Jen rated it really liked it. This was a great book, but it definitely left me wanting MORE A book for fans of the show House The writing isn't in the best style, but she is an amazing story teller. I muttered, "holy shit" more than once while reading it.

Aug 04, Kyra rated it it was amazing. A casual reminder that modern medicine hasn't conquered everything, and nor is it likely man will ever conquer all disease. Seriously good reading, but definitely not for the squeamish. Make sure you get vaccinated! Fantastic read that had me coming back for more. Worded in such a way that I could understand, even though I have little medical background. Jan 05, Lisa rated it it was amazing. Medical, sciencey, and super gross.
I was absolutely fascinated. I question reading before bed though, unless you want visions of pork tapeworms burrowing through your head.

I highly recommend this fascinating and terrifying read! The chapters about the horrors of cocci and how deadly chicken pox can be for an adult will give you nightmares. Apr 22, Peter Bryan rated it really liked it. Better than I thought because she delivered more medical technicalities than I expected. Mar 17, Rocio Reed rated it really liked it. Had a bit of a slow start but it was worth it, all the stories are so interesting and told by one doctor through out the whole book. Definitely a good read. Was I reading a book about Dr Nagami or was I reading a book about her work with infectious diseases?
