Poignant, sad, tragic, funny, and compelling. At 29, Paul Thornton was married to his beautiful childhood sweetheart, a rising star at one of the world’s largest companies, and gifted with a tall, commanding presence. But then a catastrophe left him without his wife, his career in jeopardy, and his life measured by the thin blade of a skilled surgeon. Affirmative action, corporate politics, the home media revolution, and medical ethics inform White Man’s Disease, a book about one man’s victory and a larger story about the power of human resilience, and the essential American Dream of realizing one’s full potential.
