Reviews for In Stitches – Anthony Youn, MD, FACS
The book wouldn’t be so fun to read if Youn oyun either the humor, or his deep understanding of life. Tony starts out yooun a painfully shy stihches awkward nerd.
Youn’s sense of humour is lovely, and his quick mentions of his faith are certainly present, but not overbearing or out to teach some kind of moral – it’s simply part of his life. Liked it so much I’ve bought it for others. It’s less about Youn becoming a doctor and more about him desperately chasing women. Without a doubt, this is the funniest book I’ve read so far this year. I also love how he addresses the tensions of being a second generation I think?

Nurse Keith’s Digital Doorway: In Stitches: A Memoir by Anthony Youn, MD
If you were a geek back in the day when it was NOT cool, or nuanced to be one, you’d definitely connect with the author. Book, Line, and Sinker: As he takes us on a tour of what it was like for him in medical school, the story rapidly picked up flavor and my interest. Return to Book Page. And then I started to remember all the stories of my husband and his journey through medical school While I share many of his trials, the appeal to me was more about his tribulations on dating.
I could relate a lot to Tony. A funny and touching memoir that puts doctors in a new light. Work all day, all night, weekend, make no money. In return for my services, I receive a copyor several copiesof said tome, and the satisfaction of thinkingand writinglike a critic.
Reviews for In Stitches
He makes you feel as if you are along for the ride. In this book, I actually see a lot of myself in him. Why is that mean person in the white coat hurting me? A must-read for anyone who wants to become a doctor. A first date with a girl has the oddest kind of spark and recounting a purposely broken jaw will have you giggling.
The fact that he understands deformity leads him to connect with his patients on a personal level and makes him that much better a doctor. This book is not what you expect from a modern plastic surgeon.
If you want a “typical” med school book, well this is not it! Feb 06, Judith K.
Youn has the talent of presenting us one joke after another within the same page or even paragraph. Get used to it.
Slightly less relatable than other books about med schools because of his family dynamic. Adding to this problem is i unending pressure from his father, a Korean immigrant who has become a successful obstetrician.
And a lot of it was surprising. It wasn’t as if Anthony was trying to avoid Asians, it was how he pursued and enjoyed spending time with non-Asians. Tony Youn is so well-known, otherwise I would have missed out on this little gem of a book, due to the fact that I usually avoid books iin by Hollywood celebrities and the like.
He desperately wants to fit in which is hard when you’re practically the only Korean in a midwestern town. My only critique was that I wish there was more about how his antbony journey with a bodily modification influenced his desire to become a plastic surgeon.
If the whole book had been like this, it would’ve been a solid four antyony. I had no idea he was on so many television programs, but now that I know his name and looked at a few You Tube videos, I am going to start checking out this personable physician.
One of the reasons that I liked the book was because it was a light read and I finished in a couple yoin by reading several hours a day.
His characterization of women throughout is sophomoric. Without some more meaningful undercurrent, the book became a collection of “a funny thing happened to me on the way to the OR” stories that were often just TMI.
