Product description

Review

Case's empathy and compassion are everywhere evident in this beautifully written narrative (Sunday Times)

Written with a poet's ear for language and a nurse's compassionate heart. It will make you cry, and it will buoy your faith in humanity (Stylist)

This fascinating and erudite book takes us through one woman's lovely relationship with her father interspersed with poignant and searing tales from the world of the nurse, as these two worlds move towards an emotional collision. Molly has treated us to a book that gets to the heart (literally) of a nurse's life. As well as being informative, moving and so interesting, it is a bloody good read. Anyone who needs any more convincing that the NHS is our most invaluable asset will find that many times over within the pages of this book (Jo Brand)

Beautifully written and passionate tales from the nurse you would choose for yourself

Poetic and compassionate, offering a joyous celebration of life (Sunday Times best memoirs of 2019)

Molly Case reminds us that humanity and moments of true care are as healing as the medicine modern science can deliver

The tandem stories of Case as nurse and daughter exert the pull of a novel through pages threaded with philosophy and history, ethics and etymology (Sunday Telegraph)

Case's book will restore your faith . . . She illuminates the fascinating and never-ending loop of care in a hospital (New York Times)

What differentiates How to Treat People from other cracking doctor and nurse memoirs already out there is Case's youth and her outstanding use of language. Her charm is her generation's charm: open, loving, bold, inquisitive, caring. May she inspire her contemporaries to join her in a vital job (The Times)

The moments of empathy and kindness in extreme, tragic situations form the focal point of Case's book, which weaves together science and storytelling (Red Magazine)

Book Description

The hand of a stranger offered in solace. A flower placed on a dead body as a mark of respect. It is these moments of empathy that define us as people.
