Readings and Lectures

Kate Scannell: Death Of The Good Doctor
Modern Times Bookstore, 888 Valencia St.
Based on journals written during her five years as the clinical director of AIDS programs in Oakland, Death of the Good Doctor is a richly detailed chronicle of the author's compassionate relationships with individual patients whose diverse stories humanize the vast complexities of the epidemic. Presenting life on the AIDS ward as a series of often difficult and sometimes humorous engagements, Scannell (who has been a cancer patient herself) writes from the viewpoints both of a physician and a woman facing her own mortality. fffffff

Timothy Gallwey: The Inner Game of Work
Stacey's Bookstore, 581 Market St.
The bestselling author of "The Inner Game of Tennis" and "The Inner Game of Golf" reveals an approach to overcoming the inner obstacles that prevent us from achieving excellence and enjoyment in the workplace. Timothy Gallwey has spent the last 20 years as a lecturer and business consultant to some of America's top corporations. He challenges us to reexamine our fundamental motivations, definitions of work, ways of working and ways of making changes. No one makes the human factor of work easier to understand.
