Publisher's Summary

Every time surgeons operate, they're betting their skills are better than the brain tumor, the faulty heart valve, the fractured femur. Sometimes, they're wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine is the back drop for the entire book.
Monday Mornings, by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, follows the lives of five surgeons at Chelsea General as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M. It is on Monday mornings that reflection and introspection occurs, usually in private. It is Monday Mornings that provides a unique look at the real method in which surgeons learn - through their mistakes. It is Monday Mornings when, if you're lucky, you have a chance at redemption.

Get me a writer, stat!!

Sorry, but although I enjoy Dr. Gupta on the news, an author he is not. This is yet another thin "novel" from a doctor wanna be author. While Dr. Gupta is very impressed with the medical profession, (and neurosurgery in particular), there really is no clear plot line. Instead, the book serves as a vehicle for Gupta to relive cases and other tales from medical school. Along the way he expounds on the problems with healthcare, the trouble with medical sales people, lifestyle choices, and on and on. The only problem is - they do nothing to advance or develop A PLOT. So yes, I am calling it - Dead on Arrival.

Any additional comments?

I wanted this book to be good. I gave it a good try, listening to more than 4 hours of it. I really enjoyed Cutting For Stone and had read that the two authors had some similarities. The authors may (I believe that they are both physicians), but the stories are in no way comparable. I found Monday Mornings nothing short of stupid. I wouldn't be surprised to see it made into a movie for the Lifetime Network.
