The blowhards, the know-it-alls, the scrupulous and the impecunious are all targets for Shaw's incisive wit in his classic satire of the medical profession. A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne'er-do-well husband of the woman he loves.
Includes a conversation with Dr. Neil Wenger, the Director of the Healthcare Ethics Center at the University of California, Los Angeles.

Read this 1906 Shaw play about medical ethics, and you might wonder if the master wit had nodded a bit. On the page this satire of doctors faced with the choice of curing the tuberculosis of either an unscrupulous but talented artist or a meek friend might seem old-fashioned. But hear this thrilling performance by L.A. Theatre Works, and you will wonder how your reading missed the many delights of the work. In the hands of director Rosalind Ayres and her cast, the satire elicits steady laughs from the live audience as the Harley Street medical cronies become a seamless comic ensemble, and, best of all, each of the play's many shifts from comedy to drama is brought off unerringly. Listeners will admire the skill of L.A. Theatre Works at capturing the energy and intelligence of this play.

A great book
A wonderful book that I found to be developmental and maturative for a young man coming of age such as myself. I found this book relatable and really well written. I further highly recommend this book.

Well written and well performed. If you appreciate irony and subtle humor, this is top shelf.
