In the interest of full disclosure, I want to make clear at the outset of this review that, in my book, Horace Davenport can do no wrong! In my first year of medical school at the University of Michigan, Professor Davenport was assigned as my advisor. I quickly came to feel that there must be some higher power watching out for me. I, like so many UM medical students over the years, came to know and to revere Horace Davenport as an extremely thoughtful, caring, wise, and witty mentor who provided guidance and inspiration that continue to affect my sense of calling as a physician.
