Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science (Paperback)
I am currently a medical student and we were recomended this book in one of our lectures and it is one of the most interesting books that I have read this last year. It has enough medical facts to keep someone who has some (though not a lot) of knowledge into medicine but not to much that it becomes unreadable to people without the medical back ground. It raises ethical issues aswell. I really enjoyed this book and will be recomending it to all my friends.

I am interested to know which medical college you attended. In which module and in which year of med school were you recommended this book? I am from London, and I find in general, that young doctors seem to understand very little about Medicine and the bigger picture. I.e. the point of it. They are completely brainwashed by the NHS system (whose primary aim is to cut costs, not promote Medicine), and see little else in their jobs than money, job safety and career prospects. So I am interested to know if there are doctors who have grown out of the traditional viewpoints of the medical and pharmaceutical industries and see things more objectively, and whether individual lecturers at certain universities promote this lateral thinking.
