This book shares the secret lives of women in white coats as it takes you to the inner most thoughts and emotions of a group of successful women who are not only doctors but also wives, mothers, daughters and sisters among many other roles. Each chapter shares their individual narratives as they overcome obstacles and hurdles to achieve their dream of becoming physicians during their time as medical students, residents and also practicing physicians. It also shares what it’s like to be the woman in the white coat dealing with life and death, to be pregnant working in sometimes difficult conditions or to be a physician watching a family member die.

The stories are real and honest, yet at the same time inspiring and empowering. These authors share with a lot of heart and soul. It’s a page-turner that draws you in from page one and keeps you going all the way til the end. It’s a must-read for anyone considering a career in medicine but also for anyone who wants to better understand their physician or are curious as to what experiences they went through and the thoughts and emotions that go through their mind as they do their work. If you have loved “Greys Anatomy” or “ER” you will like this even better because you’ll also get to hear the inner dialogue of what is going on in your doctor’s mind.

It makes you realize that even people who seem so successful had obstacles to overcome and struggled with finding their true passion too. Amazon Verified Purchase
