Write The First Customer Review

May considers the overarching images that shape the convictions and daily practice of the physician. Taking a step back from the procedures and quandaries that are the focal points of many books on ethics, he explores the moral power of images in understanding the healer and defining his or her tasks. May updates his reflections on five images of the healer: parent, fighter, technician, teacher and covenanter.
