Tired of the pace and noise of life near London and longing for a better place to raise their young children, Mary J. MacLeod and her husband encountered their dream while vacationing on a remote island in the Scottish Hebrides. Enthralled by its windswept beauty, they soon were the proud owners of a near-derelict croft house鈥攁 farmer鈥檚 stone cottage鈥攐n 鈥渁 small acre鈥?of land. Mary assumed duties as the island鈥檚 district nurse.<i> Call the Nurse</i> is her account of the enchanted years she and her family spent there, coming to know its folk as both patients and friends.<br /><br /> In anecdotes that are by turns funny, sad, moving, and tragic, she recalls them all, the crofters and their laird, the boatmen and tradesmen, young lovers and forbidding churchmen. Against the old-fashioned island culture and the grandeur of mountain and sea unfold indelible stories: a young woman carried through snow for airlift to the hospital; a rescue by boat; the marriage of a gentle giant and the island beauty; a ghostly encounter; the shocking discovery of a woman in chains; the flames of a heather fire at night; an unexploded bomb from World War II; and the joyful, tipsy celebration of a ceilidh. Gaelic fortitude meets a nurse鈥檚 compassion in these wonderful true stories from rural Scotland.

<b>One of America's top doctors reveals how AI will empower physicians and revolutionize patient care </b> <br /> Medicine has become inhuman, to disastrous effect. The doctor-patient relationship--the heart of medicine--is broken: doctors are too distracted and overwhelmed to truly connect with their patients, and medical errors and misdiagnoses abound. In <i>Deep Medicine</i>, leading physician Eric Topol reveals how artificial intelligence can help. AI has the potential to transform everything doctors do, from notetaking and medical scans to diagnosis and treatment, greatly cutting down the cost of medicine and reducing human mortality. By freeing physicians from the tasks that interfere with human connection, AI will create space for the real healing that takes place between a doctor who can listen and a patient who needs to be heard. <br /> Innovative, provocative, and hopeful, <i>Deep Medicine</i> shows us how the awesome power of AI can make medicine better, for all the humans involved.

A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, <i>Five Days at Memorial</i> radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis.<br /><br /><b>One of The聽<i>New York Times</i>' Best Ten Books of the Year</b></p>
