Really boring and mistaken in many assumptions. Its not that doctors don't think of an unusual disease (such as Wilson's disease) every time a drunk enters the ER, its that payers will not approve exotic tests on every patient. We could practice medicine to never miss a diagnosis but at a staggering cost that society is not willing to pay for. Any episode of "House" is a better insight into how doctors think.
I was not a fan of historical novels, until this. But now I can't find another historical novel that is as good.
All were realistic and believalbe.
Great book. Depp is fantastic, but I wish I knew he only does part of it. I would have opted to read the book instead of listening to it.
