These short stories have been inspired by Leon Samuels' experiences over nearly forty years working as a chiropodist in private practice.
Part of his work involved coaching students and postgraduates prior to them qualifying and going into practice. As well as delivering lectures at universities and hospitals he also gave less-technical talks to groups such as ladies' meetings, guilds, etc. In these talks humorous stories were used to illustrate the kinds of experiences chiropodists might meet within their careers.
Many of the patients who inspired these stories are no longer with us, and that is sad, but without them this book would never have been written. The book's title, ‘Not Only Just Feet’ was a phrase used to introduce the author when he gave a talk to a Parkinson's group. It seems to cover the situation precisely.
