"Honest Tales of a Medical Resident: Don't Call Me Doctor!", by Keiichi Kawafuchi, relates the author's own experiences as a resident in a university hospital. The road that he took to become a medical doctor wasn't straight-forward. He first worked in various and odd jobs, even turning into a hikikomori (someone who withdraws from society), before deciding at 30 to become a medical doctor. He eventually graduated at 37 years old from Kyoto University's Medical School, and is now a freelance internist and writer. Although reviews may be mixed (one side likes the book, the other side doesn't), I found the author's experiences and musings quite honest and frank.
