This sentimental memoir honors Remen's grandfather, who died when she was 7. Raised in a different faith than her grandfather, who was a rabbi, Remen drifted into socialist/new age thought after his death. She surprised herself by returning to his teachings when her cancer patients confirmed many of his truths. Remen has a strong New York accent, which may be grating by the end of three hours. However, she speaks slowly, drawing out words even more when adding emphasis. What she lacks in delivery she makes up for in heart. Her obvious endearment and respect for her grandfather more than compensate. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC/JAN 01]
