Read in July, 2010

Written by the internist who serves as the medical advisor for the TV show "House". It is relatively light in the medical mysteries aspect but does a good job in making the case that the art of physical diagnosis is becoming an extinct skill among today's physicians. Couple of favorite quotes from the book: "I learned about mitral stenosis the way I've learned so much of medicine--from my own mistakes" and "Knowing how someone died makes it easier to remember how they lived. And after medicine has finished doing all it can, it is stories that we want, and, finally, all that we have."
