    This inspiring new book weaves a web of stories focusing on people whose work in health professions education has touched the lives of others in very important ways. Each chapter is told from the viewpoint of an education innovator and is supplemented by short reflections from those individuals whose lives have been changed as a result of that work. With a focus on the process of innovation, the book organically explores various phases from conceptualization, implementation, evaluation, and dissemination. Educators' Stories of Creating Enduring Change generates a deeper understanding of an individual's capacity for creating enduring change. It is ideal for all medical professions educators.
