About the Author

Clifton K. Meador, M.D., is Clinical Professor of Medicine at the Vanderbilt School of Medicine and Meharry Medical College as well as director of the Meharry Vanderbilt Alliance. He is the author of eight books, including A Little Book of Doctors' Rules and Med School: A Collection of Stories of Medical School, 1951 to 1955.


Clifton Meador is undoubtedly a gifted clinician but his greater gift is his uncanny ability to capture and define the problems in medicine for which there are no easy labels and no easy cures. Meador's thoughtful, anecdotal style allows every reader entry into that most complex of subjects: body and mind in health and disease.
--Abraham Verghese, author of My Own Country and The Tennis Partner
. . . it is rare to find an articulate, analytic account of experience, and even rarer to see how it happened. Unlike a magician, Meador not only shows the empty hat but also where the rabbit was hidden. . . Meador taught himself to eschew mind-body dualism and to expand the range of communication between physicians and patients that can illuminate the meanings of symptoms. For these reasons, I recommend Meador's Medical Odyssey to family physicians who may be fellow travelers.
--Family Medicine
We owe Dr. Clifton Meador . . . a debt of gratitude for teaching us techniques to more effectively listen to the stories our patients want to tell.
--Journal of the American Medical Association
