Milton Haber M.D., who had no intention of becoming a physician, became one. He also went as far as becoming the founding owner of a successful clinical research center called Laguna Clinical Research Associates. Notwithstanding the role of fate, hard work, focus, and determination kept him in medical school and made him a successful doctor.

Snippets of his family in his earlier years, his life as a young person, and his experiences as a medical student and practitioner were narrated in detail. The highlight of it all was when he contracted COVID-19. He narrated his experiences as a patient and the various long-term effects of the disease. It is on this basis that he gave reasons everyone should take the vaccine, despite their fears or reservations.

From the details about his life, some traits that I found evident during his internship and years as a doctor are his remarkable work ethic and love for his patients. I particularly appreciated Milton’s care and compassion for his patients. This is due to how important human life is. Even though doctors must be paid for their services, it is important that they consider the health of their patients before anything else. Indeed, all doctors should have this trait of Milton's.

There are various lessons in this book. I learned that we should not be so rigid in believing that there is a particular path for us. We should be flexible enough to allow life to pivot our paths because the outcome may be good.

I found it difficult to grasp some parts of this book. Relevant details were not included, or at least some parts were not explained in a way I could easily understand. An example is the details of how the research center came into existence. Even after I reread some parts of the book, I found it difficult to connect the dots. Unfortunately, this affected my reading experience and has prompted me to deduct a star. Other than that, this was an insightful and engaging read. Since I only found a few errors, Grand Slam Life by Milton Haber, M.D. with Beth Herman was professionally edited. Therefore, I am rating it three out of four stars.

The good thing is that anyone can read this book. Anyone, including medical practitioners or students interested in reading about Milton's experiences, will find this book insightful. They can also learn from the strength and commitment of the author. Also, if you have any doubts about the COVID-19 vaccine, this book can help you clear your doubts.

Milton became a Covid 19 patient and required the care and help of other physicians even though he was one. That makes him fit to mentor other physician 7on how they handle the patients. I do like also the lessons learn from this book. I agree that we should be flexible on how life takes us. Thanks for a detailed review.

Work ethic and love for patients are vital qualities that I wish all doctors would develop in their work. By the book's title, I assume that Dr. Haber experienced a lot of success and happiness in his decision to become a doctor. Good review.

Hard work and determination are some of the essential attitudes to acquire and sustain in order to actualize one's dreams. Writing this book from a personal experience, I am certain that souls out there will be motivated and encouraged.

This book will appeal to medical practitioners, and since I am not one, I will not be reading this book. However, I enjoyed the review and appreciated the author's hard work. Hard work truly pays.
