 In addition to being witty, readable, and filled with helpful information, Karen Stone's book, Awakening to Disability is important for physicians and health caregiversforthree main reasons:
a) It introduces in a very human way the disability community, which includes patients, acquaintances, friends, strangers, clients, and relatives.
b) The tenuousness of life. You could join that community this evening on your commute home. We can and should prepare for such an event.
c) You or someone close to you may already have a significant disability.
