In A Barber's Guide to Life, Medicine, and Faith, Mike Nelson shares the important lessons he learned in an American institution . . . the barber shop. As an apprentice barber to Mike Read of Mike's Barber Shop in Lilburn, Georgia, Nelson learned not only how to cut hair but many essential life lessons. Years later, after a decade as a practicing physician, he became aware of how many of his patterns, principles and beliefs were derived from his time with Mike Read in the barber shop. This book is a must read for an emerging physician, and its handy study guide questions serve as a clever Bible study tool for small groups and Sunday School classes.
