About the Book

The unpredictability of man is stressed in the biographical sketches presented in this book, which resembles the unpredictably of nature.  The struggles of people are evident in their different aspects of life.  These are things that are not learned at school, but in the workshop of life, where experience becomes one’s teacher.  This collection of essays brings forth a love of people, a love of and respect for nature and a deep sense of history.  There is also a commentary on the direction medicine is taking today.  There should be much to interest everybody.
