In the Country of Illness: Comfort and Advice for the Journey- Book Review

This book offers valuable practical advice for patients on dealing with doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff. What questions to ask, how to ask for a second opinion, how to understand hospital, how to be insistent without being unnecessarily aggressive, what kind of gesture on your part can encourage proper attention, how to complement hospital care, how to make a stay in the hospital as pleasant as possible, how to handle matters of health insurance. This book is for those who is experiencing a long-term or chronic disease him/herself but it is equally important for the caregivers to appreciate fully their role in the disease paradigm.
