Focusing on hope, and how it might be a contributing factor in the healing process, Dr. Groopman writes from some thirty years of clinical practice. Paul Michael has a calm, reassuring voice befitting a doctor. As Michael chronicles Dr. Groopman's development from medical student to doctor, working in a field of chronic illness, one is invited to witness the physician's growing understanding of the phenomenon of hope. Michael's use of inflection and tone for each character allows us to fully experience Dr. Groopman's personal epiphany about the vital part hope plays. A reminder about the importance of optimism in our daily lives. R.S.E. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/ SEP 04]
