The Narrow Road to the Deep North and Other Travel Sketches by Matsuo BashōIn later life Basho turned to Zen Buddhism, and the travel sketched in this volume relfect his attempts to cast off earthly attachments and reach out to spiritual fulfillment. The sketches are written in the haibun style--a linking of verse and prose. The title piece, in particular, reveals Basho striving to discover a vision of eternity in the transient world around him and his personal evocation of the mysteries of the universe.

Basic and Clinical Science Course (BCSC) Series
It's probably even more daunting as a first-year resident, when everything is completely new and unfamiliar. The American Academy of Ophthalmology has put together a reading schedule that lets you read through every single Basic and Clinical Science Course book all except for Section 1, Update on General Medicine , starting from July 1 until the end of February. It's broken up so that you average approximately 20 pages per night, which makes it slightly less painful. The reading schedule is also arranged so that the higher-yield sections are presented first, to help first-year residents learn the key subjects first. I think it's a great resource for people who are interested in reading through the BCSC material in less than 1 year. With this schedule, it is very conceivable for an ophthalmology resident to read through the entire BCSC material 3 times in the course of residency once per year.

The American Academy series has always received a presence in most ophthalmology departmental libraries. Facilitating a further edition is a major undertaking, and the Academy has generated a more formative series of 13 volumes, providing clear objectives and study questions as good adjuncts to each volume. Although this series is written for residents in the USA, its value could be added if it appeals to trained ophthalmologists, allied professionals and, of course, the rest of the world. To gain such appeal, both content and style throughout so many volumes and disparate subjects even within our small field has to be uniform, and is a challenging task. So, on reading, I was impressed with the breadth covered. I enjoyed subjects that were not my subspecialty and was pleased to see that the style was reasonably consistent throughout. The series was well and appropriately illustrated.
