Who would have thought that an offhand comment would lead to a life-changing adventure? It might have started as crazy talk, but to one man’s wife, it was an invitation to move beyond the ordinary. Full and By: A Doctor’s Life of Stethoscopes, Sailboats, and SLRs tells the tale of how Art Myers went from schoolboy to physician to world traveler, with his family packed aboard a forty-one-foot sailboat and plans for a future in a tropical paradise.
Neither rich nor privileged, Myers attended no fewer than fourteen grade schools before going to college, medical school, and residency training. He learned along the way that his talents could serve the greater good and volunteered his time while maintaining control over his own destiny. Full and By is the inspiring tale of a man who continues to lead a life well-lived.
