Editorial Reviews

" A first-rate book . . . [Hospital] reads like a novel, elicits equal parts dismay and awe, yet never wavers from truth telling." -Dan Cryer, Newsday " Immensely heartening. . . . If there's hope for our overburdened health care system, Hospital suggests we can thank the decent, thoughtful men and women laboring overtime to improve the quality of life-and death-in our gloriously lumpy American melting pot." -O, The Oprah Magazine
