Reviews

". . . Russ Sawa's book is valuable reading for anyone interested in the family in family medicine, and must reading for those involved in training future family physicians in the family dimensions of practice. Sawa's is a grass-roots approach that grew out of extensive experience in practice and in training. Drawing on a number of existing models, Sawa's practical synthesis is original and his applications credible. The book is a pioneering effort in a promising field." - Donald Ransom, M.D.
