Vom Verlag:

How does a boy labeled "slow" go on to graduate with honors and distinction—not only from college, but then earn a PhD and his medical degree? How does a doctor with severe colorblindness become a renowned surgeon? How does a surgeon dedicated to saving patients on the verge of death respond when told his own death is imminent? Paul Nemiroff was a boy who dreamed of becoming a doctor. Labeled slow and told he would never finish high school, he overcame numerous obstacles and went on to college, a masters, a PhD and medical school. He became a top head and neck surgeon at leading medical centers, a pioneer of hyperbaric oxygen wound treatment, a worldwide published researcher and lecturer, an award winning TV medical correspondent, and a runner of 13 marathons. At the peak of his career, his life trajectory was abruptly altered when he received a call—he had become the patient and was told he only had two years to live—facing a crossroads of formidable choices. Undaunted, Dr. Paul discovered and experimented with a revolutionary treatment protocol that he believes has kept him alive and in reasonably good health for 15 years—allowing him to share this knowledge which he hopes will inspire others and be a catalyst in the quest for a cure.
