Dr. Scott A. Kelly is releasing his first book “What I’ve Learned From You: The Lessons of Life Taught to a Doctor by His Patients” on April 30, 2015 at the Barnes & Noble in Buckhead.
“‘What I’ve Learned From You’ can teach us all to learn from one another,” said Bernie Siegel M.D., who wrote the foreword for the book. Dr. Siegel is the New York Times best-selling author of “Love, Medicine, and Miracles” and “The Art of Healing.”
The book’s stories are based on real patients that made an impact on Dr. Kelly’s life. They explore human relationships and give an intimate view into the window of the human condition.
“I feel strongly that these stories need to be told, because without sharing them they, like all of us, will perish,” Dr. Kelly explained. “And I believe they deserve to live.”
“What I’ve Learned From You” takes the reader on a journey from an inner-city trauma center to the bedside of a dying cancer patient. It tells the story of human experience: love, pain, healing, sickness, birth, death and all the things in between. It brings compassion and empathy back to the art of medicine.
The book will be available online at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble and book stores throughout the nation.
