      ‘Doctors go to sea for a variety of reasons and at that time I could not have articulated my own.’Author/physician Peter Tate republishes his ‘novelized autobiography of his tenure as a ship’s doctor from 1969 – 1972.’ Peter has published several books about doctor/patient relationships – THE DOCTOR’ S COMMUNICATION HANDBOOK, THE OTHER SIDE OF MEDICINE, THE CONSULTATION: AN APPROACH TO LEARNING AND TEACHING, MAKING THE MOST OF YOUR DOCTOR and IF YOU KNEW SUSIE, and another book S [...]

      Peter Tate pens an amusing story about a young surgeon who goes to sea on an old cruiser. As an assistant doctor, Tate learns quickly that there are many illnesses that text books didn’t cover the cure. One example was the crew member who was deathly ill because of fear. Fortunately an older co-worker recognizes the symptoms and recommends a cure. Some of Tate’s patients weren’t able to be saved and their deaths were quite sad.As Tate was able to travel to different countries many of his s [...]

      SeaSickness is a very special tale narrated in the voice of a doctor. In fact, the father of the central character Peter Tate was also a doctor and it was interesting to read about the many devices which he kept with himself while delivering babies. SeaSickness narrates the ups and downs of life on a sea, but even the difficult and bad things are told in such a funny manner that the reader cant help but smile. The love story is beautiful but, poignant and every page of this long eBook was worth [...]

      The first thing I noticed about this book is that it is extremely descriptive, even when you aren’t sure what the author is talking about. He uses metaphors and imagery that can’t be mistaken, which also help you understand the type of place he’s coming from. It seems like it is something depressing or sad from the beginning, but you will want to keep reading to be sure. Essentially, it is the tale of a man who was a doctor and his reasons for becoming one. It also explains how he got to t [...]

      “Sea Sickness” is Peter Tate’s novel that is reminiscent of some old plays where you have a great tragedy, but then also some greatly entertaining comic relief. We get to follow Tate’s character that is of himself (autobiographical styled) as he follows in the profession that his father basically shoves himself into the position of a medical professional, but he tries to make the best of the life that has been thrust upon him. He gets to work on a cruise line and has to make do with his [...]

      Humourous yet tragic. This novel is basically an autobiography of Peter Tates life as a young ship doctor. It has a wide array of interesting characters that makes the novel come alive. It is very well written which is highly refreshing because I have read many novels of late that caused me to focus too much on the grammatical errors rather than the story line. Apparently, Peter Tate did not choose to become a doctor. Rather, his father insisted. However, he delved into it and goes above and bey [...]

      Peter Tate, gives us a delightful autobiography of himself and his experiences as a young doctor. You might think that this would lead to a boring read, but Tate’s writing style and wry humor help guide the reader through a delightful set of characters and locations. With the host of characters, this book has a slight edge of the fantastical about it as well. The 1970’s were an impressionable time for the young doctor Tate, and although he did not choose this profession (his father did), he [...]

      Seasickness by Peter Tate is an autobiographical tale of Peter's early experiences after getting out of medical school and what he did to learn how to be a master of his craft. Peter was unsure of what to do, but decided that a good option as a young doctor was to take to the seas. His exact reason for that is unknown, perhaps even to himself today, but he did it and this book shows the fruit of the labors he went through. The ship was called the SS Orcades. It was an older boat but had a season [...]

      As luck would have it I read this book whilst holidaying on a luxurious cruise liner. In these memoirs, Peter Tate is reminiscing about happier times when he was a young ship’s surgeon working for P&O. The story is very entertaining –full of gossip about life on board and officers fraternising with passengers (much frowned upon!) What gives an extra dimension to the story is that Peter is remembering these anecdotes about his young life whilst hovering between life and death following ma [...]
