"Reading Dr. Paul's book is like taking an exhilarating journey through the shifting landscape of genetics, health, and evolution." -- Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize winner for * The Emperor of Maladies: A Biography of Cancer *
"Dr. Paul has been described in the media as 'one of the most inspiring, intelligent and compassionate men you are likely to meet.' TIME magazine, in 2008, called him 'Open Heart Surgeon.'" -- New Zealand Medical Association, in awarding their highest award in 2012
"We need Dr. Sharad P. Paul. In the same sense as the world needs historians-philosophers-sociologists for the history of mankind, the world needs a physician-philosopher-literate for narrative medicine. Only a distinguished physician such as Dr. Paul, with a sense for 'stories,' understands the importance of narrative medicine when improving patient-physician communication. He is the Sigmund Freud and Arthur Schnitzler of our times." -- Harald Kittler, PhD, professor of Dermatology, Medical University of Vienna and international thought-leader in the field of dermatology and skin imaging
