THIS JUST MIGHT BE THE MOST IMPORTANT BOOK YOU READ ALL YEAR. 

Your life can change in a heartbeat. None of us know where, when or how. But a catastrophic medical condition lies in wait for us all - or our loved ones.

How will we respond? How will our families react? What combination of hope, confusion and mercy will the minefield that is the medical industrial complex hold in store for us?

All of these pressing, life-and-death questions and more are answered in journalist John Luciew's enthralling and compelling new book, Catastrophic. We become members of three families, each facing a vastly different crisis and a perplexing set of medical choices. We follow each as they journey toward their own versions of recovery - or make peace with what cannot be altered.

It's an unflinching look at the state of medicine today -- as well as a tender, human portrait of how families and loved ones respond heroically to the direst circumstances. And it's as real, complex and dramatic as life itself.
