I woke up to the amazing news that my book, Recapturing Joy in Medicine, is a # 1 Best Seller in its category on Amazon today!!! I am so thankful for the growing interest in the book, the book studies being started in residency programs, and the impact it’s having on people’s lives. In particular, a warm thank you to the physician leader who just purchased a copy for every member of her State Medical Association Board! Imagine if every board throughout the country, all the leaders in medicine, would read this book together. That is exactly the type of impact I envisioned when I researched and wrote it! I am so grateful to have this work of love bearing fruit during a time when it is so desperately needed.



I am thrilled the book is also now available at Barnes & Noble stores (if it’s not at your local store yet, just ask and they’ll order it!). They have been so gracious! I’m enjoying working with them and sharing how much physicians care for their patients, and why we must take back medicine. What a blessing! We’re planning my first book signing and presentation at a local Barnes & Noble; I will post more on that soon.

Thank you for spreading the word about this unique resource that empowers physicians to reclaim their voice in medicine and restore the patient-physician relationship that drew us to this noble profession.


P.S. An upcoming post will include my new leader’s guide for physicians using Recapturing Joy in Medicine at their hospitals, medical schools, residency programs, and the small groups they keep forming in communities. Stay tuned! Also, did you notice the #2 book next to mine? All about coding … the irony! Recapturing Joy in Medicine is right there now, displacing our top stressor — the business of healthcare! Hooray!!!
