New Memoir THE CHRISTMAS DOCTOR is Released
"Sometimes, present day medical practitioners seem to forget the deep spiritual springs of their profession," author Tom Weber says. In his quest to highlight a remarkable person's almost unbelievable willingness and drive to help people, Weber tells an endearing and inspiring account of "The Christmas Doctor" (published by AuthorHouse). Illustrating Dr. Weber's (his father's) life, Weber presents a very interesting alternative to today's emphasis on the economic side of the medical practice and also to modern-day s tudent loans.
Since his life was saved as a teenager by a deeply religious nurse, John Peter Weber dedicated his life to saving the lives of others. He performed hard physical labor over a long period of time in order to pay the cost of attending medical school. His medical career took place amidst some of the most primitive country in the United States including Hell's Canyon of the Snake River, Salmon River Canyon, and the Bitterroot Mountains.
Presenting not an ideal but real practice of one heroic physician from the earlier times, Weber gets his message across that an unselfish, humanitarian, and courageous medical practice can be rewarding.

About the Author
Tom Weber was born at Boise, Idaho, in 1946. He received a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Brigham Young University in 1970 and a Juris Doctor degree from the University of Utah in 1973. Through the years, he has worked for a number of governmental agencies, including the Utah State Insurance Fund and the United States Tariff Commission. While growing up in southern Idaho, Mr. Weber accompanied his father on many of his house calls. He resides at Salt Lake City. "As I began to earnestly research my father's life," recalls the author, "and caught a glimpse of his enormous achievement, I sensed my unworthiness to search further. I was treading on holy ground. It was like entering a sacred shrine and involuntarily dropping to one's knees in awe. Still, I determined to stay the course despite my weakness since no one else was likely to ever do so."
