Summary
Sir William Osler (1849-1919) is often considered the pre-eminent physician of the 20th century. A humanist who emphasized compassion for the individual, a doctor whose bedside skills and manner were emulated by admirers and students, an educator whose concepts revolutionized clinical teaching, Osler is regarded by many as the ideal medical practitioner. His eloquent essays and speeches, laced with principles and precepts written in an aphoristic style, have influenced generations of physicians. Organized by topic and thoroughly indexed, this revised paperback edition of The Quotable Osler includes a chronology of Osler's life and achievements, plus 50 new quotations, 40 of which come from a previously unknown address Osler gave to medical students at the University of Pennsylvania. Osler's meaningful and valuable teachings are timeless. The Quotable Osler is the ideal resource for those seeking an apt quotation for an article or presentation, or for those wishing to sample his thought-provoking and uplifting messages. -- Back cover
