Description
In this follow-up to his memoir Bag Balm and Duct Tape, Beach Conger and his wife leave rural Dumster, Vermont, for suburban Philadelphia. Conger takes a job in a teaching hospital in the poorest part of the city, where he treats patients who struggle for food, shelter, and safety, and finds that urban bureaucratized medicine and its many hurdles are a far cry from the more individualistic and hands-on medicine he practiced in Vermont. Each of the 30 chapters is centered on a particular patient or particular theme in medicine, in a book that is both funny and poignant, and showcases Conger's irreverent and empathetic views on medical practice.

"The inspiring tale of a fine and caring physician's life and times in two places that could scarcely be more different: rural Vermont and inner-city Philadelphia. Written with great humor, wisdom, common sense, and compassion, It's Probably Nothing is a uniquely American memoir by a very insightful American individualist. I loved it."—Howard Frank Mosher
