    With the short and to the point chapters this book offers a detailed look into the life of a medical student. No frills and extras, just personal story after personal story all based off of his experiences.
  • Great book

    Hey, my name is Damir and I am a pre-med student in school (undergraduate). This Is a very insightful book, it paints a very good picture of what it's like to be in medical school. I learned a lot for this book and want to thank the author for sharing his experiences with the world. I also want to wish you the best of luck in residency. Would recommend to anyone interested in going to medical school.
  • Great Book!

    I'm a first year med student right now and I can already relate to many things in this book. The only negative I have is I wish it were longer!

    I will be starting medical school in the Fall. This book was an easy read that gave me a glimpse into my future. At times the book made me feel sad, happy, or even angry, but these experiences are ones that I will most likely share with the author in the coming years. Accepting this fact allows this book to be a sort of cautionary story that I am grateful for having read.
  • If Pre-Med, Buy THIS

    Touching, humorous and a true page-turner. I highly suggest this highly entertaining and insightful look into the world of pre-, post- and during medical school life. 10 out of 10.

    The author's writing reflects his sense of humor. You can imagine him as a nice, funny and great physician that you want to shadow or work with. It's a good book and very easy for everyone to read, specially, premed students. Thanks Doctor!
