Memoirs of a Surgeon's Wife: I’m Throwing Your Damn Pager into the Ocean Kindle Edition
Using humor, reflection, keen observation, and journalistic research, "Memoirs of a Surgeon’s Wife: I’m Throwing Your Damn Pager into the Ocean" peels back the surgical mask to reveal the human being underneath. From the 10 commandments for pleasing superiors to the conundrum of the 80-hour workweek to wearing mismatched shoes to work, Sharma delves into the world of modern medicine as experienced by physician trainees and their loved ones.
Sharma began writing "Memoirs of a Surgeon's Wife" in October 2013, while her husband was near the finish line of his grueling six-year surgical residency program. The two met in December 2008, barely a few months into his residency. At the time, Sharma had no personal connection to the field of medicine and had no idea what an otolaryngologist was. She quickly learned the hazards of dating a doctor: a wildly unpredictable schedule, constant pager interruptions, little to no free time, and an incessant pile of dirty scrubs taking up precious real estate on the bathroom floor.
Alas, a soul mate is a soul mate, and the pair learned to navigate both surgical training and their relationship as Dr. Sharma went from date to boyfriend to fiancé to husband and father.
When medicine meets holy matrimony, anything can happen…

Top reviews from other countries
1. the first twinklings of romance
2. the short-lived allure of wearing her doctor boyfriend's scrubs
3. the wonder of marrying into a new family she adores
4. the very real costs of training
5. and, of course, the horrors of the dreaded pager.
This book would make a great gift for anyone contemplating medicine, as well as for partners, siblings, parents, and spouses of those brave enough to train as doctors. The book is entertaining and well-researched.
