Book Review: A Country Doctor’s Notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov

A Country Doctor's Notebook by Mikhail Bulgakov Most of the stories have a humorous, albeit anxious, writing style to them that makes them entertaining to read, despite the (gross!) subject matter. A few towards the end are a bit more grim though, and they weren’t as appealing to me.

Book Review: All Natural*: *A Skeptic’s Quest to Discover If the Natural Approach to Diet, Childbirth, Healing, and the Environment Really Keeps Us Healthier and Happier by Nathanael Johnson

All Natural*: *A Skeptic's Quest to Discover If the Natural Approach to Diet, Childbirth, Healing, and the Environment Really Keeps Us Healthier and Happier by Nathanael Johnson An interesting premise to look at an interesting question: is natural really better? The subjects examined seemed like a bit of a mish-mash, though the author had some personal connection to all of them. Not all of them were handled with as much detail though, especially later on in the book, and some relevant questions were overlooked, especially when looking at health/healing and how pigs are raised. An ok book overall though, and it can certainly lead to pursuing some topics further.
