Book News Annotation:

After studying medicine in his native South Africa, and then in Britain and the US, and working as a clinician and researcher for a decade, Kaplan began travelling as a doctor, journalist, and documentary filmmaker. In his first book, he recounts his life and education, and some of his field experiences in places ranging from Kurdistan, Mozambique, Burma, Brazil, and Eritrea to transit lounges. A memoir, it includes no index or bibliography.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
