Dr. Cyril B. Sherer was born in London in 1921. He studied at Middlesex Hospital Medical School, graduating in 1945. He served as a medical officer in the New Zealand Army of Occupation of Japan from 1946 to 1948. He spent the next 13 years in Auckland, New Zealand, in general practice. He moved to Israel with his family in 1961. Since then he has been in private practice in Jerusalem.
A dominant figure in tourist medicine, he has been successfully taking care of Israelis, foreign diplomats and their families, international journalists, and UN personnel. He is not the central subject in this book. It is neither a memoir nor an autobiography, but a series of stories about fascinating people and circumstances in which Dr. Sherer has been involved, as seen through different eyes in different places, concluding that “people are more interesting than bacteria.”
Dr. Sherer vividly recounts how medical practice has changed over the years. His personal story and the stories he shares bring to life the enduring value of a trusting physician-patient relationship, especially how his patients have benefited as he has become a more mature and wiser physician.
