Two kids I am closely related to.
I must also say, though, that the reading showed me how appreciative a crowd can be even when they might not buy the book at all. Some of them did, of course, and that I appreciate. But I don't know whether everyone did - and that didn't matter. I felt like they had already had the same ideas that I did in the book, and together, at the event, we were transformed into a cooperative medium to disseminate the importance of doctor-patient communication to a healthy relationship with one's provider.
It doesn't matter who writes the book - it just matters that the ideas get out there. They are out there already, of course: that's the point of the research I cited. They just need to be taken up by our whole system, dissolved into the drinking water.
Which is the task of our health system in all things, to move from transaction to dissemination. We don't want to have to purchase health from a doctor, a pharmacy, or hospital - we want it to be understood and learnable from any random guy on the corner, like a language.
Can you help disseminate?
