From reviews:

"This little book is well written and has a pleasant,informal style… The first part of the book covers what [the author] calls thesoft skills, but what could be called the social skills required to make theconsultation work most successfully… This section might be ideal for a trainerwith a trainee facing clinical skills assessment.
… The second part of the book tries to encourage and enablethe career GP to look after themselves. Again, well written, it is full ofuseful advice…. To sum up, a short book from which every GP might learn something." Br J Gen Pract, February 2019

“At times nostalgic, but frequently emotional and sopositive, this book is an easy-access antidote to the calls for ‘resilience’and the anti-patient rhetoric that seems to appear all too commonly on social media,and is a well-timed reminder of why we do the job we do and how to do iteffectively.” Pulse, June 2018

The Art of General Practice is a short text written by anexperienced GP and GP trainer. It is a book which will help focus the mind ofthe reader (GPs of all descriptions: young GPs, returners to general practiceand even jaded GPs) on what it means to be a GP. Too often general practicefocuses on guidelines, ever-changing targets, incentives or the academic sideof medicine and the art and craft of being a GP is forgotten.

The book aims to redress the balance; it helps the reader refocus on theemotional intelligence needed to be a great GP. The book consists of a numberof short chapters so the busy GP can dip in and out of it as time allows – eachchapter helps the reader re-centre on the core skills and techniques needed tobe a great GP, and the benefits these skills will bring to both GPs andpatients alike.

There is almost no medicine in this book; it is a book of life experiences,anecdotes and suggestions – all aimed to help you survive the increasingpressures of general practice and make your life as a GP more interesting andless stressful.
