"A Doctor For All Seasons is an engrossing and compelling read, a genuine page turner. A fascinating, profound, informative and, at times, extremely funny memoir of what it’s like to be a doctor labouring on the coalface devoted to keeping the main players in entertainment, sport and more importantly life in general up and running.” – Timothy Spall

"An intriguing and entertaining account of a doctor’s encounters with the luminaries of film and sport. It is a diverting account of a professional life with a difference.” – Peter Ackroyd
