by Augustine L. Perrotta, DO. Gilbert, AZ: Keith Publications LLC; 2015. 246 pp. ISBN: 978-1628820935. 
A View From the Inside: A Collection of Medically Oriented Short Stories comprises 15 stories that are loaded with medical history and are entertaining and instructive in the context of the world we live in. Dr Perrotta, a hematologist and oncologist, uses his expertise as a clinician and teacher to weave each story in a personal way. 
As I read the book, I thought about my experiences in medicine, and I began to appreciate my own journey. As a medical resident at Detroit Osteopathic Hospital in Highland Park, Michigan, I knew Dr Perrotta for always wearing a bow tie and a smile. I wasn’t at all surprised that one of the stories in this collection is about bow ties. In this chapter, he offers an answer to the question, “Who wears bow ties?” and discusses his love for this fashion statement. I confess that I bought a few back then and wore them because of him.
