This compelling story is told by a unique voice in medicine - that of Brendan Reilly, a distinguished internist whose work was profiled at length by Malcolm Gladwell in his bestselling book "Blink." A riveting first-person narrative - a true story that reads like a novel and recreates Dr. Reilly's present-day, moment-to-moment E.R.-like dramas with patients, families, and medical staff at the Medical Center. A wrenching, brilliant, inspiring read.

Extraordinarily well-written. Relates the difficult medical choices we face as we near the end of life to the current debate about our healthcare system.
