 Book Cover

Dr. Sterling’s authentic collection of stories succeeds as both an enlightening commentary on emergency medicine and as an unflinching memoir, tracking his journey as a physician across two decades, dozens of cities and countries, and more than 75,000 patients. More importantly, Behind the Curtain offers an unforgiving mirror reflecting the best and worst of human behavior – and prompts readers to reexamine the way they live their lives.
