Blog title...

All of those who knew John Roman and George Engel and those not lucky enough to meet them, are indebted to the authors of this absolutely splendid book for bringing alive an experiment in psychiatry that succeeded so well and proved such a shining example for our field and for medical education. This book is a happy illustration of what scholarship and literary skill can contribute to the understanding of how to care for our patients and how to teach students to improve their skills.
