The 15 most popular Doctors Bookshelf reviews of 2020

This is the one time of the year when I am not in control of this blog’s contents. As usual, the list of most popular book reviews of the year is determined by how many views each review chalked up. 2020 has been a busy year; we got a book review out almost every week, and covered the following themes:

12 PHENOMENAL BOOKS…WRITTEN BY WOMEN DOCTORS

9 EXCELLENT BOOKS ABOUT VIRUSES…FOR THESE OMINOUS TIMES

PATIENT HM: A TRIANGULATED REVIEW OF 3 MEMORABLE BOOKS

FROM EMPATHY TO VIOLENCE: 12 BOOKS ON THE POWER AND PERILS OF EMOTIONS

12 OUTSTANDING BOOKS REVEALING THE MYSTERIES OF OUR GENES
