Amazon Review, Nighthawks

Diary of a Hippie:

“Most books about medical procedures are written by doctors or other health care professionals. It’s always fascinating to hear the patient’s perspective. The book contains a lot of good information and can be very helpful for other patients considering hip replacement or scheduled for the procedure.”
