Dr. Phil Gold recounts a bygone era of the life of Jewish immigrants to Montreal on the Main, his marriage to the love of his life, studying with Sir Arnold Burgen, and the discovery of CEA, carcinoembryonic antigen. By turns heartrending, funny, and wise, Gold’s Rounds will be cherished by medical professionals and general readers.
“Gold writes, ‘I’ve never been entirely sure of who I am or how I got to be here.’ There is a charm in this admission, because Gold appears anything but lost in recounting his days. He is as surefooted in his ability to transmit his recollections as he has been in following the path that led to success in a life well lived. In the body of literature that falls into the category of ‘makers of Montreal,’ Dr Gold stands out.” –Bryan Demchinsky, former editor, Montreal Gazette
