Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

This is about career change and early retirement. The death of my best friend at a young age made us (my wife and I) reflect on the many other things in life we wanted to do besides work. Thus at age 55 I resigned from my successful academic career and started working intermittently in many different cultures in the US and abroad. This was the best decision we ever made and we have never looked back. It is hoped that the book will inspire others to get off the beaten path and possibly even motivate those with similar experiences to write about it. The book is meant for medical as well as non medical people. It is written in chronological fashion as a series of anecdotes, some medical, some non-medical, some funny, some not so funny, some in the USA and some in different cultures abroad. These anecdotes are interspersed with some philosophical considerations. I hope you will enjoy it and convince others to read it. You can download it for free.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

William LeMaire

I am a retired obstetrician and gynecologist. I love what I do. At age 55 something happened in my life that made me rethink my priorities. I left my comfortable academic position and started working as a locums in many different places around the world. In the process I gained a great deal of crosscultural experience and was prodded by my colleagues and friends to write a book about my decision to get off the beaten path and about the wonderful experiences gained. It was published as a free e book in 2012 on Smashwords and Amazon, but I want to make the book available to a wider audience. I hope that you will love reading it and may be get motivated to also get off the beaten path.
