This book is slightly better than his House Calls book IMHO.

It explains his thoughts on how to improve/change our medical system. Please look up my review on this book (House Calls).

I well remember when I was growing up in the 1950's that the local docs still made - limited in scope - house calls. I vividly remember once when I was sick - maybe 5 or 6 - that the town/local doc made a house call and gave me a shot in the butt of penicillin. But then the office model took off and is far more efficient use of a MD's limited time.

Patches views/opinions are interesting but not very practicable and I explain why in more detail in my Review of his other book.

I would rate this book a good 8.0 to 8.5 - I would only recommend if you get it at your local library.

Patch Adams, MD, is clearly one of a kind. A man with a vision about changing health care. He has many good ideas. But, many are far too Utopian for times and the systems and the people.

His book is almost all philosophy. Not much for stories. Which disappointed this reader. The few stories he shared were about trips to Moscow mostly made with groups of clowns, etc.

This reader thinks Adams could have gotten his message across far more effectively and enjoyably if he had practiced his own medicine, so to speak, in authoring the book. I wish him better luck next time.

I was super excited to get the book after watching the movie Patch Adams again. I only made it through approximately half of it because he goes over and over the same things. I love his personality and thoughts. He seems like a wonderful person with great insight, but it is difficult to keep reading the same thing over and over again.

Patch Adams had a great idea and did a lot of good. Unfortunately he doesn't write very well and the book drags on and on. He doesn't seem to have the confidence in his work as shown in the movie with Robin Williams and he has various people or organizations try to build a case for his work, a case he had already made.

gives the background of the story of Patch Adams. I understand that he was not ahppy about the movie treated it but if they had not done so, I probably would not have bought the book

Sadly I saw the fabulous film staring the late Robin Williams before I read this book. Consequently the book could not deliver the same enthralment as the film. The book was laborious to read and too bogged down in facts without much drama to be classified as a good read. This should not detract from the wonderful work the foundation performs, just watch the film instead.

An engaging, comprehensive review of the vision and life-dream
of the "real life" Patch Adams, M.D. This, the good doctor's
first book, gives the reader the background leading up to, and
the progress of the dream made since, the 1994 Hollywood version
of this man's life, which starred Robin Williams. An easy, but
enjoyable and informative read for anyone curious about what
this amazing doctor is doing now, what he has learned from his
"pilot project" clinic, and how the dream for a 40-bed free
hospital had changed and grown over the years. A must for
anyone interested in visiting the West Virigina site and working
as a volunteer. A joy for any reader who, like Patch, has
suffered the detriments of our current health care system,
and who seeks to reform it into something that can actually heal.
Very informative book on a way to provide free medical to people. Patch also has a listing at the end of the book with many resources that are really great.
