"A Piece of My Mind" (APOMM) is a weekly feature in JAMA; physicians, residents, medical students, nurses, patients, family members of patients, and others submit stories that reflect their experience and thoughts regarding health, illness, medical care, and death and dying. "APOMM" is the cornerstone of the JAMA Medical Humanities program, and surveys reveal that when readers open their new copies of JAMA each week, most turn first or second to "APOMM." Many stories are heart-warming. some are sad, some are funny, and all are thoughtful and thought-provoking. This new collection is the cream of the crop about 80 stories culled from the past 10 years. A previous collection in 1988, published in conjunction with Feeling Fine, Inc., and Alfred A. Knopf, sold about 14,000 copies.
