A couple of the interviews were pretty good, but it seemed like almost half of the doctors interviewed had gotten out of clinical care by helping other doctors find nonclinical jobs, had websites dedicated to nonclinical jobs, or were working as "coaches". The SEAK conference must have been plugged a dozen times, too. I don't think the author was shilling for SEAK, it's probably how he found most of the interviewees.

It's a sad truth that many doctors are desperate to leave current clinical medicine. We have been reduced to targets for litigation, slaves to overbearing administrators trying to get every dollar out of a failed healthcare system. We are overworked, under-appreciated, and burnt out. However, many of us still have much to contribute to society at large. This is a nice introduction to other physician's exits out of clinical medicine and gives those of us still in the trenches that we CAN get out and still have meaningful, helpful careers.

Gives the public a different view of the on-going struggles it takes, today, to be a physician or surgeon--and how 25 of them "saw the light" and changed their careers. Except for some minor grammatical and typographical errors, it is well presented and easy to ready. The public should warmly receive this set of interviews.

It was a great book. I am looking forward to reading the next one.
We need more testimonials from doctors like those ones.

Simple anecdotes from physician interviews that give no real insight or advice on moving to a nonclinical career. Certainly not worth the money.

This book is inspiring and helps you feel as if you are not "locked" into "being a doctor." However, it could have used more specific info on changing careers. Also, many of the people in the book did not leave the field altogether or had other degrees (e.g. MBA). This may not be a realistic option for most people to get another degree. Still, it is nice to see that other doctors are not completely satisfied with their careers and had the courage to make a change.

This book is so inspiring as it gives permission to all of us who may feel stuck in our careers...to step out and find our joy and passion in a new career.
The interviews are spoken with courage as they let us see inside the Medical profession to understand the stress, and the pressures of holding someone's life in the palm of your hand.

Thank you Dr. Fernandez for writing such an honest and life changing book for every person who is looking for their true calling in life.
It was personally relieving to peek into the real lives of so many doctors who also found themselves in the midst of a career change. The interviews detail their journey in transition through challenging waters, yet the majority clearly emerge with an increased measure of personal happiness and new-found career satisfaction.
