Today’s missive has no practice management value. It is pediatric related, though.
I travel a fair amount for work (how else would most of you know me?). Which means I spend times in planes, airports, and hotel rooms. As a result, in addition to my predisposition, I read a lot.
Most of the time, I try to read something of substance. That is, I try to avoid the schlock…but sometimes, in between flights, you reach for the best seller lists and see what happens. [Plus, I will admit, some of the schlock is a good break.]
I was coming back from El Paso two weeks ago and I picked up “Tell No One” by Harlan Coben. It’s not one of his Bolitar series, but a one-off about a widower who is suddenly struck with information that his wife may actually be alive. Typical page-turning, made-for-movie material. But not bad. Turns out that it is a well-received French movie, now, too.
The interesting part, however, is that the protagonist is a pediatrician! He practices at a clinic in “upper Manhattan.” Don’t know if he’s a pediatrician in the movie, but I have obviously read the “pediatric” moments of the book closely. You won’t be disappointed!
First one to ask me for my copy gets it.
