Industry Reviews

An unforgettable picture of what extremity looks like...intense. -- Clifford Geertz, Institute for Advanced Study, Princeton I know of no higher praise than to name a book necessary. Being Positive is that and more. -- Fenton Johnson, author of Geography of the Heart These are compelling stories...reminds us that we have so much to learn about life and death. -- Abraham Verghese, MD, MACP, Professor of Medicine, Stanford University; recipient of the National Humanities Medal; author of Cutting for Stone Arresting work...should be widely read by practitioners, researchers, and policymakers. -- Arthur Kleinman M.D., Harvard Medical School London Times
