One powerful and widespread result of the narrative turn in academia has been to challenge what constitutes knowledge and to assert narrative as a particular type of valuable knowledge across a wide array of fields, including the study and practice of medicine. Embracing narrative knowledge in the context of health communication, editors and authors Jill Yamasaki, Patricia Geist-Martin, and Barbara Sharf have contributed a unique text for students and healthcare professionals and practitioners entitled Storied Health and Illness: Communicating Personal, Cultural, and Political Complexities. Innumerable textbooks, topical books, journal articles and the like have been written about the role of communication in health, from the medical interview to the mass-media driven public health campaign, which will whet the appetite of anyone interested in the broader field of health communication. However, Yamasaki, Geist-Martin and Sharf approach health communication through a narrative lens, and the subsequent outcome is a very different voice among the crowd of health communication texts crying out to be read. Each chapter of Storied Health and Illness begins with a health narrative, such as the miscarriage story at the outset of the chapter on breaking bad news.
