"Kleinman infuses the theme with fresh insights and 'empathic witnessing, ' through the use of narrative, the stories of pain and suffering that give form and meaning to the experience of illness."--Elinor Lenz, Los Angeles Times Book Review
"A major contribution to the care techniques for the chronically ill."--JAMA
"Thought-provoking...touching...much needed by practicing physicians. It is a must for residents and worthwhile reading for all medical students."--New England Journal of Medicine
"If more physicians had Dr. Kleinman's ability to see and respond to all of the patient's needs, we would not have the mistrust of doctors that now pervades our society."
--Melvin Konner, M.D., PH.D., author of Becoming a Doctor
"There is no one who knows more or writes more interestingly than Arthur Kleinman about the fundamental place of the meaning of illness in the lives of sick persons."
--Eric J. Cassell, M.D., Cornell University Medical College
