The Second Edition of Erin’s book is, in reality, the physician assistant journey from conception to retirement. In an imaginative, creative and extraordinary style, she speaks to the pre PA, the PA student, to all PAs who may need advice in PA practice and sums it up in retirement. This is a contemporary analysis of the profession with cutting edge comments, philosophy and truths that clearly define our parameters and gives no illusion to required time and study to be an excellent and effective PA. I strongly recommend this to all PAs and in particular to program directors, faculty and PA students.
