    Doctors are the people we turn to when we fall ill. They are the people we trust with our lives, and with the lives of those we love. Yet who can doctors turn to at moments of stress, or when their own lives break down?

    Doctors are no different from everybody else, but their job is like no other. What does it take to confront death, disease, distress and suffering every day? To carry the 'awesome responsibility' of care? To make decisions that can irrevocably change someone's life, or possibly end it? And how do doctors cope with their own questions and fears, when they are expected to have all the answers?

    Caroline Elton is a psychologist who specialises in helping medical doctors. Drawing upon hundreds of extraordinary case studies and decades of pioneering work in the UK and overseas, Also Human presents a provocative, perceptive and deeply humane examination of the modern medical profession.
