Uncommon Wisdom
by John E. Castaldo, M.D. and Lawrence P Levitt, M.D.

I had an opportunity to listen to these two gentlemen in person at the Governance Institute Leadership Conference on Sunday evening, May 2. They told 5 of these 13 stories plus another one to be released in a future edition to a rapt audience of healthcare leaders: board members, executives, nurses and most of all, physicians. Their stories were credible, passionate, moving, riveting, genuine, humorous and heart-rending... all at the same time. I then read the book on my return flight home from Washington, Dulles to Seattle, Washington. I didn't think it was possible, but I enjoyed reading the book even more than I did listening to them in person. There was more depth and richness to each story... even the ones I had already heard. It is the perfect read for a coast to coast flight. Their stories define the "art of medicine" and they are both excellent practitioners of this lost art. Not only is this a "must read" for all healthcare professionals, it is also a "must read" for everyone who has been or will be a consumer of healthcare as well. — Brian D. Wong, MD President and CEO The Bedside Trust
