Read from August 08 to 17, 2017

My answer to those "what career would you choose if you had to live your life over again?" questions is always to get into medicine, so I find a book like this to be utterly fascinating. This isn't an easy read - the queasiness that kept my younger self from getting anywhere near the medical field would have been doing overtime if I'd read this book back then - and the chapter where Melinek describes working the New York City medical examiner's office after September 11 is particularly difficult to endure, but the book is always fascinating.
