really liked it

This is a book every medical student is supposed to read before starting their intern year, and I had never read it (slacker!). The middle was slow and the sex stuff was a surprise, but all in all was a good depiction of actual modern medicine. Not a book to read if you want to retain a glorified image of your doctor. Thank goodness things have changed a bit for the better in the past 30 years!
