Description

"Among all the recent books on medicine, Critical Care stands alone." — Pauline Chen, author of Final Exam

"A must read for anyone who wants to understand healthcare. Extraordinary." — Elizabeth Cohen, MPH, CNN Senior Medical Correspondent

Critical Care is the powerful and absorbing memoir of Theresa Brown—a regular contributor to the New York Times blog "Well"—about her experiences during the first year on the job as an oncology nurse; in the process, Brown sheds brilliant light on issues of mortality and meaning in our lives.
