The doctor writes with passion about his despair. He writes about home births due to closed maternity wards, to save money. He writes about treating the underweight and the overweight, and starving hospital patients.. He really cares about his patients, as you can see from the weekly diaries. He uses wit and great visuals to get his point across.
