 About the Book 

Cardinal Newman maintained: “It is almost a definition of a gentleman to say that he is one who never inflicts pain.”To say that anyone fits entirely into this category is a tall order, but if one approaches it, my father, Jim Wall, did.In a tributeMoreCardinal Newman maintained: “It is almost a definition of a gentleman to say that he is one who never inflicts pain.”To say that anyone fits entirely into this category is a tall order, but if one approaches it, my father, Jim Wall, did.In a tribute to him after he died he was described as: “much loved and highly regarded for his gentlemanly qualities and his renowned skill as a medical practitioner.”In the 72 years of his life he left a legacy to be proud of: a wife and family who revived him, communities grateful for what he had done, and friends who valued the affection he had for them.Throughout his life he was guided by his Christian principles rather than by worldly ambitions and personal desires.I know David Wall very well- unfortunately I never had the privilege of meeting the father of whom he often spoke. In his biography David brings to life the memory of a fine and respected doctor from a time of professional and family standards sadly passed. It is quietly told by a loving, admiring and respectful son who, perhaps like many of us, would like nostalgically to turn back the hands of the family clock.Peter Johnson CBE
