Nonfiction account of a young doctor's intern and residency years. There's not much new and different about the cases he covers, but what lifts this book above the run-of-the-mill medical story is Marion's insistence that modern medical training, with its 36-hour working shifts, indifferent superiors, and virtually non-existent emotional support from supposed mentors, destroys the careers of some would-be doctors and churns out mostly successful automatons.

I loved this book. It will capture the attention of anyone interested in or thinking of a career in the medical field. Engrossing!
