New Book: “Laugh, Sing, and Eat Like a Pig”

1

One of the people I've been fortunate to meet in the last year is Dave deBronkart, aka “e-Patient Dave.” I saw e-PD present at the HIMSS conference this year and we were able to spend some time together during some Lean training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston. We've been able to talk a lot about the wonderful overlap between Lean and concepts of “patient-centered care.”

Dave has written a book based on his blog, the book is called Laugh, Sing, and Eat Like a Pig: How an Empowered Patient Beat Stage IV Cancer (And What Healthcare Can Learn from It). I just received my copy and I decided to do a parody “unboxing” video (partly because Dave comes from the hi-tech world). Dave and Paul Levy each did a good job setting context when they posted the video on their blogs. If you've ever seen a nerd carefully open an XBox 360 or some other gadget, you'll recognize the style of badly made video, perhaps.

You can order the book from Amazon: Laugh, Sing, and Eat Like a Pig: How an Empowered Patient Beat Stage IV Cancer (And What Healthcare Can Learn from It)
