People learn their languages by hearing words and then understanding what they mean. A child learns words, strings them together in phrases and is later corrected by his or her parents. Imagine if a 4-year-old in saying a sentence were forced to say the complete conjugation of the verb before going on to the next phrase! Yet many people think that to learn a new language they need to learn all the conjugations before they continue.

On Medicine Today The Good, The Bad, The Ugly

Over the past several decades, the medical profession  has lost much of its once-proud nobility, and the practice of medicine has lost much of its fun. These losses profoundly disappoint and sadden me, but writing about them comforts me. In that light, I refer you to the roll of toilet paper that appears opposite the title page of this book. It was a gift to me from 2 senior students at Baylor College of Medicine in 1978. The inscription on that roll reflects my philosophy to a T: think for yourself and organize your thoughts carefully,
then convey them clearly, succinctly, emphatically, and honestly. When you do that, you do more than separate the shit from the shinola. You become a leader, and you
rise above the norm of mediocrity.?
