Job for Life

Enlightenment, finally

James M Taylor, senior house officer

I found the Book of Job a fascinating medical classic1: the serial misfortunes, the (well meaning, but misplaced) counselling from friends, and the refusal of the Higher Power to accept fault.

It's good to know that there was an evidence base for MMC/MTAS.


Competing interests: JMT survived MMC/MTAS; some of his friends did not.
