Dr Hugh Selbourne kept a diary for most of his professional life - as a GP in the 1930s, and throughout his distinguished career as a senior consultant physician to a group of hospitals around Manchester in the 1970s. In this book, we are given four crucial years (1960-63) which saw great changes in English life. It was also a time of deep personal crisis and declining health for Selbourne himself. The diary, edited and introduced by his son, takes the reader as close to the practice of medicine as it is possible for the layman to be. The author also wrote "Left Behind - Journeys into British Politics" and "the Making of a Midsummer Night's Dream".
