Amy Boesky · 0 read & download The Story Within review Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook By genetic disease respond to such choices in varied and personal ways These writers reflect that breadth of response yet they share the desire to challenge a restricted sense of what health is or whose life has value They write hoping to expand conversations about genetics and identity to deepen debate and generate uestions They or their families are affected by Huntington’s disease Alzheimer’s disease cancer genetic deafness or blindness schizophr. There s nothing I enjoy than a first person essay so I was looking forward to reading this book This book contains sixteen essays from contributors whose lives have been touched by the specter of genetic disorders Some writers tell of suffering from disease or watching family members suffer while others speak of the possibility of disease looming and what that means for their state of mind and the decisions they makeUnfortunately for the most part I found the essays an unsuccessful mix of story and study It s the personal narrative that interests me most and in most of the essays it is overshadowed by lengthy discussions of a scholarly nature Only a few essays held my interest Why Would You Be Wanting to Know Not Talking about Schizophrenia in Ireland String Theory or How One Family Listens through Deafness What If and I think it s because in these essays the elements of story and study were well balanced A person for whom genetic disease is a personal and urgent matter would appreciate the scientific side of these essays than I didAs examples of collections of essays having a connection to health matters that I did enjoy I would recommend two anthologies edited by Lee Gutkind Becoming a Doctor From Student to Specialist Doctor Writers Share Their Experiences and I Wasn t Strong Like This When I Started Out True Stories of Becoming a Nurse His earlier anthology At the End of Life True Stories About How We Die is also worth reading although I found the stories in that book somewhat one note hospitals bad hospice good

Amy Boesky · 0 read & download The Story Within review Ó PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook The contributors to The Story Within share powerful experiences of living with genetic disorders Their stories illustrate the complexities involved in making decisions about genetic diseases whether to be tested who to tell whether to have children and whether and how to treat children medically if treatment is available More broadly they consider how genetic information shapes the ways we see ourselves the world and our actions within it People affected. Description The author has compiled a group of essays about genetic disorders from around fifteen different contributors all dealing with issues such as Alzheimer s cancer deafness and schizophrenia as examples It shows just how complex this is It makes genetics humanI found this thought provoking very moving and extremely interestingHighlights I found this extremely interesting to read from an individual prospective The Long Arm by Clare Dunsford was fascinating in telling how Fragile X Syndrome affects not only the child or adult with it but previous generations The authors have put a personal touch to this rather than just a book about genetic disorders I grew up in a time when genetics was not talked about and people were labelled with their disorders and we grew up in fear rather than understanding Since reading this book I have a better understanding and empathy It is thought provoking and testing for the reader to decide whether to have tests to have children or to speak to members of their familiesStrengths and weaknesses The authors cover a variety of stories concerning genetic circumstances and theses are both moving and at times uite emotional for the reader This is real life and complicated It helps the reader to empathise and importantly to understandI found that reading this from sixteen authors gave this a very varied approach to the subjectsThe notes section was extremely valuable as it listed each of the stories and gave valuable further information and referencesOne aspect I felt was not a true reflection was concerning True Stories About How We Die the view of hospitals not being as good as hospices I felt this was unsubstantiated as there are excellent hospitals that are committed to patients being cared for properly at the end of lifePotential Readers As this book explores complex issues surrounding genetic identity this is applicable for all healthcare professionals who care for patients and the need for great understanding of genetics
