Started reading Michael Creighton’s autobiography – so far, very good.

I was never a monster fan of Michael Crichton (which is in no way a critique of he or his writing) although I enjoyed Jurassic Park as a vacation read, but was pointed towards his autobiography “Travel,” which is quite good so far. He traveled to remote places a lot to refresh, and his intro states this is a book about that plus Med School.

Right now he is in med school, studying cadavers, and has experienced a “click” where he stops thinking of the bodies as a human being. He said that is important for a doctor, where they are not overwhelmed by their feelings but not estranged from them. I can imagine that is important – my lung surgeon probably should not think of my lung on emotional terms as he cuts into it 🙂
