Product description

From the Inside Flap

"A powerful, true story of life and death in a major metropolitan hospital...Harrowing... An important book."
THE NEW YORK TIMES
What is life worth? And what is a life worth living? At a time when America faces vital choices about the future of its health care, former NEW YORK TIMES correspondent Lisa Belkin takes a powerful and poignant look at the inner workings of Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas, telling the remarkable, real-life stories of the doctors, patients, families, and hospital administrators who must ask--and ultimately answer--the most profound and heart-rendng questions about life and death.

About the Author

Lisa Belkin is a former New York Times reporter whose book Show Me a Hero was the basis for an HBO miniseries produced by David Simon. She is currently chief national correspondent for Yahoo News and lives in Westchester County, New York, with her husband, Bruce, their sons, and their dog, Riley.
