    " Wow this guy can write. His style is thick with metaphors for the human body and for illnesses, but he comes across as real and as someone searching for meaning in suffering. Poetic-style. I'm going to have to read his other books. "

    " Great if you are interested in medical type books- his wiritng style is very unique and sometimes disturbing, but I love these short stories! "
