This is not Jamaica ER of the UK's Channel 4. It's a kinder, more respectful & less invasive self expose of a Jamaican doctor's journey into and through medicine. Maybe a milder, Jamaican, version of Blood, Sweat & Tea. Even so, it is no less eye opening, even shocking, & can be funny as all...well....read it.
This book is for all those who have trod the road of what is considered standard western medicine ... where we make ourselves ill in school to learn to cure the sick...:)
