    Every time surgeons operate, they're betting their skills are better than the brain tumor, the faulty heart valve, the fractured femur. Sometimes, they're wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine is the back drop for the entire book.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    There were too many characters that were underdeveloped and uninteresting. He should have developed a few characters more in depth. Also, I don't think the author brought any drama to the M&M conferences. Flat and uninspiring.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Sanjay Gupta again?

    I might


    Which character – as performed by Christian Rummel – was your favorite?

    Vinueva (sorry if spelled wrong---audio, you know)


    Did Monday Mornings inspire you to do anything?

    Go back to my regular favorite fiction authors


    Any additional comments?

    I was disappointed. This sounded like it was going to be a great book. I've worked in the medical field, and it could have been really interesting, given the topic. I've also known real neurosurgeons, and they are usually more arrogant and not so friendly to each other.
    An interesting theme wasted.
