This is an all around excellent book. Well researched, well thought out, and well developed throughout. Segal is an amazing author, and its hard not to quickly get engrossed in the book as the characters become more and more developed. As someone with very little exposure to the ins and outs of actually being a doctor, this book really proved to be eye opening. The discussions of the grueling course load, difficult residency, and even more difficult execution of medical duties really gives you a new found respect for doctors.
One of my favorite aspects of the book, however, is its discussion of the challenges minorities/women face in the medical profession. Through his exploration of the struggles faced by Bennett and Laura, you come to appreciate those trailblazers that helped define what the medical profession is today.
If you are looking for a light, easy read--Doctors probably is not the book for you. However, if you are looking for a suspenseful, interesting, and thorough book, then you will love Doctors.
