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.

Enlightening, well-paced, eye-opening.
Wrong site surgery at the end of the book.
Excellent interpretation. Two areas in need of improvement: a more defined pause between scenes - sometimes two distinct scenes ran into each other. I'm sure this was editing and not Mr. Rummel's performance. But the second area for improvement is Mr. Rummel's interpretation of female voices. Almost without exception, they brought to mind Dustin Hoffman in Tootsie. This was a significant annoyance for me.
However, overall, very enjoyable listening.
No. Too much to think about.
