The Anatomy of a Calling - Lissa Rankin

This was a bit of a mixed read for me.  Lissa Rankin was an obstetrics doctor who was finding herself at work running from one crisis to another while working, with care of the patient getting left behind in the rush to  put out fires.  Burnt out and over it, Lissa left to search out her own way of practicing healing.

I enjoyed the telling of her story - how it was not only about her needs to be able to work in a safe and supported environment, but to provide a better experience for patients, and to be able to teach other medical professionals about how they can achieve better results for them and their patients using holistic and healing techniques.

There were moments though that the book got a little preachy about telling the reader what they should do and I kept thinking that it verged into a bit too much witchy woo hoo for me. 3/5.

I think much can be learned from holistic healing or whatever it's called, but I think much of it is also wishful thinking. Then again, when something provides a good experience for the patient, it's valuable.
