Summary Now a major motion picture: Noah Gordon's beloved masterwork, read by millions in thirty-five countries. In eleventh-century London, a child holds the hand of his dying mother and is terrified, aware something is taking her. Orphaned and given to an itinerant barber-surgeon, Rob Cole becomes a fast-talking swindler, peddling a worthless medicine. But as he matures, his strange gift, an acute sensitivity to impending death, never leaves him, and he yearns to become a healer. Arab madrassas are the only authentic medical schools, and he makes his perilous way to Persia. Christians are barred from Muslim schools, but claiming he is a Jew, he studies under the world's most renowned physician, Avicenna. How the woman who is his great love struggles against her only rival, medicine, makes a riveting modern classic. The Physician is the first book in Noah Gordon's Dr. Robert Cole trilogy, which continues with Shaman and concludes with Matters of Choice.
