When Abraham Verghese, a physician whose marriage is unravelling, relocates to Texas, he hopes to make a fresh start as a staff member at a county hospital. There he meets David Smith, a medical student recovering from a drug addiction, and the two men begin a tennis ritual that allows them to shed their inhibitions and find security, in the sport they love and in each other. But when the dark beast that is David's addiction emerges once again, almost everything Verghese has come to trust and believe in is threatened. Compassionate and moving, The Tennis Player is an unforgettable, illuminating story of how men live and how they survive.

Professional tennis is a neatly synchronized effort by well-trained players who rarely deviate from the prescribed notions of how to play the game. Highly skilled and conditioned athletes travel the world with a personal entourage, and they lead lives which are relatively well scripted. Amateur players come to the party with a towel, a bottle of water and, maybe, a banana. Each amateur tennis players’ attire, equipment, and tennis swing is as unique as his or her hopes and dreams for the life they want to lead. This diversity leads to peculiar happenings on and off the courts. Whether it relates to controlling your anger, hydrating properly, determining who to partner with to ensure victory, or captaining a team, THE TENNIS COMMANDMENTS will explain how not to take tennis or life too seriously and help people win at both tennis and life.

Ethics in Professional Life

What does it mean to be a good professional? What is the role of courage in professional life? How do we develop the moral qualities of respectfulness, justice and care? Firmly rooted in practice, this book is a timely exploration of the nature and value of a virtue-based approach to ethics in health and social care. Skilfully drawing on relevant moral philosophical literature, Part I offers a clear yet critical account of virtue ethics. Virtue ethics bases ethical evaluations on the moral qualities or character traits of professional practitioners. This approach, the authors argue, is a vital counter-balance to the recent emphasis in professional ethics on the regulation of conduct by rules and procedures. Part II explores the key virtues of professional wisdom, courage, respectfulness, care, trustworthiness, justice and integrity. Each chapter starts with examples from practice and ends with strategies for cultivating these key virtues in education and practice. Ethics in Professional Life is a challenging and original text that is ideal reading for all students, practitioners and academics in the field of health and social care.
