Publisher's Summary

The blowhards, the know-it-alls, the scrupulous and the impecunious are all targets for Shaw's incisive wit in his classic satire of the medical profession. A well-respected physician is forced to choose whom he shall save: a bumbling friend or the ne'er-do-well husband of the woman he loves.

Includes a conversation with Dr. Neil Wenger, the Director of the Healthcare Ethics Center at the University of California, Los Angeles.

The Doctor's Dilemma is part of L.A. Theatre Works' Relativity Series featuring science-themed plays. Lead funding for the Relativity Series is provided by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation, bridging science and the arts in the modern world.  

Recorded before a live audience at the Skirball Cultural Center, Los Angeles in December 1998.

A great book

A wonderful book that I found to be developmental and maturative for a young man coming of age such as myself. I found this book relatable and really well written. I further highly recommend this book.

Quality Piece

Well written and well performed. If you appreciate irony and subtle humor, this is top shelf.
