Julie Salamon immersed herself in an inner city hospital, Maimonides (in Brooklyn), for a year to discover what makes this multi-cultural medical complex run. Details are abundant as she writes about her experiences, and explorations of the politics that are abundant in this institution. She writes about real life experiences that mimic some of the hospital drama TV shows, but delves deeper into the relationships that form and clash in the fast paced environment of Maimonides. There were sections of the book that were quite stagnant for me, while other pages flew by without a blink. Anyone in the health care system would probably find the book enthralling and titillating. If you are interested in the inner machinations of an inner city hospital, and enjoy reading about the egos of some of the physicians and administrators, you will certainly want to pick up this book.

Dry and boring. I guess I was expecting a little more case studies and more patient-doctor interaction but instead this is mostly about the people who run a hospital and how it is run. Not what I was expecting at all. If you are looking for a book about the ins and outs of hospital administration, this would be a good book. Not what I was looking for, though.
