The Uncertain Art by Sherwin B. Nuland

I’m really enjoying Sherwin B. Nuland’s The Uncertain Art: Thoughts on a Life in Medicine, which I heard about through the New York Times Book Review (as usual) and checked out from the library last month.

Each essay, most of which were originally published in The American Scholar, is a joy to read. His essay on exercise is funny and I particularly like Nuland’s ability to discuss the history of medicine (and even art history) as it relates to his surgical practice at Yale and modern medical practice in general.

Will write more when I finish the book…
