Dr. Peterson's unique perspective on this challenging condition and his passion for communicating to an audience that includes patients and their families, as well as his peers, is reflected in this article. This piece is an example of a genre called creative nonfiction, described by Lee Gutkind, as a "story...that serves to communicate information and to make a point."(http://www.leegutkind.com/cnf_genre.html)
