"Consumed in the City "grows out of his experiences and offers a persuasive case for thinking aboutOCoand treatingOCotuberculosis as an inseparable component of the scourges of poverty, homelessness, AIDS, and drug abuse. It is impossible, Draus argues, to treat and eliminate tuberculosis without also treating the social ills that underlie the new epidemic. Paul Draus begins by describing his own on-the-job training as a field worker, then places the resurgence of tuberculosis into historical and sociological perspective. He vividly describes his experiences in hospital rooms, clinics, jails, housing projects, urban streets, and other social settings where tuberculosis is often encountered and treated. Using case studies, he demonstrates how social problems affect the success or failure of actual treatment. Finally, Draus suggests how a reformed public health agenda could help institute the changes required to defeat a deadly new epidemic. At once a personal account and a concrete plan for rethinking the role of public health, "Consumed in the City" marks a significant intervention in the way we think about the entangled crises of urban dislocation, poverty, and disease."

I work with Paul, so I purchased the book because I thought it was cool that someone I worked with wrote a book...and I wanted it signed, of course! I read it out of curiousity and really didn't expect to enjoy it too much. I mean, come on, TB? How interesting can that be? Actually, quite interesting. I'll admit that I glossed over some of the detailed research stuff, but Paul's stories and theories about how "sick" people should really be treated are fascinating. It really opened my eyes to the idea that a medical problem isn't always just a medical problem...there are many facets to our lives and most affect our health. I think every health care worker should read this book. And I definitely think Hillary Clinton should read it, especially if she's going to be our next President!!

I liked his case histories. I think he shows so much empathy for the many homeless in need of help.
