"My walk through life in words and pictures." HS Dr. Harold Stein grew up in the small border town of Niagara Falls, Canada and went on to become a world authority in ophthalmology. Not all the things he learned along the way came from a text book or lecture as he illustrates in his memoirs. Follow along as he traces his early years, dodging across moving trains to get to school, trading a rifle for bugle in high school and the life changing encounter which inspired him to choose medicine as a career. While ophthalmology is a serious specialty, Dr. Stein never loses sight of his sense of humor, sharing his own faux pas in investments, family life and medicine. His stories are also a journey through history: the pre war years in Canada, of the post-war years at university as Toronto grew to become a world class city. In those years society, culture and technology changes and Dr. Stein gives us a front row seat through the 1950s and 1960s as he pursues his studies at the world famous Mayo Clinic and later Oxford University before starting at a suburban hospital built on a dirt road and surrounded by farms. Join him as he travels the world, sometimes for pleasure, sometimes to give back by using his skills to treat patients in the third world who would otherwise be blind or go blind. It's an adventure of a lifetime with lots of laughs along the way. HAROLD A.
