Read in January, 2006

Michael Ruhlman is a local celebrity and a fairly nice guy. I see him at our community pool all summer and his kid is in my daughter's Montessori classroom.

In addition to all that ephemera, I appreciate the premise of his work. My partner first started reading his books about world class chefs and what it takes to work in a top kitchen, an area of interest to her. I was not so interested in reading about cooking but this book, about pediatric cardiac surgery, grabbed my attention since I used to do pediatric anesthesia and knew some of the players in the book.

He illustrates a world completely alien to most of us, and blessedly so. It's not an easy or fun read, but it is fascinating.
