When we think of a misfit, we often who willfully engages in the kind of behavior or attitude that sets them apart from others in an uncomfortable way. There are times when misfit behavior can turn out good, such as when a member of a football team chooses to disobey the coach's instruction and scores a touchdown. There are other examples of misfits when ones behavior fails to follow protocol, makes others uncomfortable and causes harm.

This book is about those who cause harm. In the final analysis, who or what is there to say about the "misfits" as a group? Unlike the physicians portrayed in "Monsters of Medicine," there is no common thread that can best describe who they are or what drives them to behave the way they do.

Rest assured, anti-social traits can be shown in all of them, but they are not shared nor are they consistent. The Hippocratic Oath, as sacred as it sounds, is to many of these missits a bunch of words conceived by an old Greek physician 2,000 years ago and has lost its signisicance.

The lay public continues to put unadulterated faith in the physician. The ill patient, particularly if seriously ill, is vulnerable, grasping at anything which might hold hope of recovery. The unscrupulous physician sinds this patient as one easy sell to their misfit ways.

Thus, the characters: "MISFITS OF MEDICINE."...

Dr. Colliflower died 01/17/2018 with "Misfits of Medicine" almost complete. His wife, Linda, (knowing his love hard work and dedication to working on his characters) finished this project.

Bill was a Midwesterner by birth (Illinois), a former navy pilot and on OB/GYN for more than 50 years. He and his wife, Linda, practiced together for more than 45 years internationally and in beautiful Amador County for the last 27 years.

When not reading, writing or practicing medicine, he was an unapologetic history buff, (boasting more than 5,500 in his library) golfer, tending to his olive farm and traveling the world.

"Monsters of Medicine" was his first book.
