Narrative medicine has emerged in response to a health care system that places corporate and bureaucratic concerns over the needs of patients. Charon argues that by making genuine contact with patients through storytelling, narrative medicine leads to more humane, ethical, and effective health care.

IAHPC Newsletter, May 2013 This is not a new book, but I felt it had something special for palliative care. Rita Charon is Professor of Clinical Medicine and Director of the Program in Narrative Medicine at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. I think it is appropriate to say that she is the mother of Narrative Medicine.... I would recommend this book to anybody working in palliative care, as it will bring them face-to-face with issues related to the
patient/healthcare professional interaction that in all probability had already been troubling them.

Doody's Notes This is a great book, but not one for fast assimilation. This is a book that takes much work to understand, but readers will be warmly rewarded for their efforts...well done.

The Lancet, Vol 370, It is a compelling mix, backed by the unusual authority of a physician who is also a literary scholar. ... Narrartive Medicine is practical enough to be beneficial to the clinician, yet sufficiently theoretical to serve as a seminal text in the field. Even master clinicians can gain from the knowledge and skills presented here. Charon has written an inspired and inspiring book; and, in her stories of patients and students, she is a role model for us all.
