"Compelling and compassionate human drama. If you want to understand how modern medicine ticks, fasten your seat belt and spend a day in the hospital with Theresa Brown on The Shift." --Danielle Ofri, MD, PhD, author of What Doctors Feel A moving story unfolds in real time as practicing nurse and New York Times columnist Theresa Brown reveals the individual struggles as well as the larger truths about medicine in this country. She lets us experience all the life that happens in just one day in a busy teaching hospital's oncology ward. In the span of twelve hours, lives can be lost, life-altering treatment decisions made, and dreams fulfilled or irrevocably stolen. Every day, Theresa Brown holds these lives in her hands. On this day there are four. There is Mr. Hampton, a patient with lymphoma to whom Brown is charged with administering a powerful drug that could cure him--or kill him; Sheila, who may have been dangerously misdiagnosed; Candace, a returning patient who arrives (perhaps advisedly) with her own disinfectant wipes, cleansing rituals, and demands; and Dorothy, who after six weeks in the hospital may finally go home. Prioritizing and ministering to their needs takes the kind of skill, sensitivity, and, yes, humor that enable a nurse to be a patient's most ardent advocate in a medical system marked by heartbreaking dysfunction as well as miraculous successes. This remarkable book does for nurses what writers such as Atul Gawande and Abraham Verghese have done for doctors, and at shift's end, we have learned something profound about hope and healing.

As we contemplate leaving the morning of our life, where ego has played a commanding role, and entering the afternoon (and evening), where meaning and purpose replace ambition and struggle, we may encounter unexpected occurrences that accompany this new direction. It's almost a universal law that we'll experience a fall of some kind. Yet these falls or low points provide the energy we need to move away from ego and into a life of meaning and purpose. The Shift doesn't mean that we lose our drive and ambition; it signifies that we become ambitious about something new. We make a commitment to living a life based on experiencing meaning and feeling purposeful, rather than a life based on never-ending demands and false promises that are the trademark of the ego's agenda.

It is also about how the nexus of technology and globalisation will work together with demographic and societal changes to fundamentally transform much of what we take for granted about work.

Preface This book has been in the works approximately thirty-seven years. When I was twenty-two, I knew I was going to write a book. I just didn't know what the topic would be or where it would go. That was in the days of manual typewriters. Functional home computers with word processing were still about eight years away. It wasn't until about two years ago in the spring of 2010 that I felt it was time to write. I toyed with a couple of different themes since biblical prophecy was my prime interest. However, as the writing progressed, I felt the Lord directing me to write the story of my journey from religion in the Roman Catholic tradition to a Bible-based, personal relationship with God as the creator of the universe. I grew up attending Catholic schools and my experiences are very similar to thousands of others who have attend parochial school. It was a great experience and solid educationally. It just wasn't fulfilling spiritually. I don't focus on the political and social issues facing the Catholic Church, as some folks have. I will not Catholic-bash. If anything, I have tried to be evenhanded concerning my experiences growing up Catholic and those of dealing with my Protestant Christian friends. There will be some things said in this book that will cause my Catholic friends to cringe. There will also be some conclusions with which my Protestant friends will disagree. The story is my personal journey and one I am happy to share. It is the story of my journey from religion to relationship, and my personal view from the pew.
