the best of the 'Cook books' I've read
on February 5, 2002
I stumbled on this book by finding a checkout slip in a library book (Virus X) and being a biologist with an interest in the medical field, wondered if these book written by a 'real doctor' might be marvelous. I got really interested when I saw how many book were written by Robin Cook. Someone must love his writing style in order to keep publishing his works, right?!?!? Well, this one is the only one of the 4 I've read that were worth my time! A revealing look at the life-style of the 'captive' intern jumping through the hoops necessary to make it to the 'real world of medicine'. The sleep deprivation, the 'old boy' school, the dissing of the intern by those further along the path. Sad but true.
