?Dr. Rick Hodes? life story is a reminder that giving is a privilege in which we may take pleasure, not some saintly endeavor.His approach toward medicine should be a model for our current Western system in showing that tending to the soul is at the center of healing.This is a Soul envelops the reader in Dr. Hodes? indefatigable light and is an inspirational reading experience.?
