After almost 100 pages, I still cannot figure out the thesis of this book. It reads like a 300-page profile piece from the NYT, without a clear protagonist or antagonist. Is this a story about a good hospital? A bad one? Should I like these people? Should I hold them up as example of problems in the system? Are there really even problems in the system, or is this the best we can hope for? The author leaves me feeling indifferent about all of it, and ultimately this book too.
