THE ANATOMY OF HOPE How People Prevail in the Face of Illness

by | Read by Jerome Groopman

Personal Growth • 5 hrs. • Abridged • © 2004

Jerome Groopman's voice is rich with intensity and conviction as he describes the transformational experiences he has lived through. Groopman has spent years working with the critically ill; he also spent years in chronic pain himself after back surgery. This combination gives him perspective; both sympathy and empathy fill his voice as he describes his interactions with patients, so much so that at times it's hard to listen without wincing. His pace is measured as he strives to balance these personal touches with his scientific training. His serious but accessible tone is itself a sign of how well he has succeeded in balancing his personal connection to his patients with his professional responsibilities. G.T.B.
