David Oshinsky, whose last book, Polio: An American Story, was awarded a Pulitzer Prize, chronicles the history of America's oldest hospital and in so doing also charts the rise of New York to the nation's preeminent city, the path of American medicine from butchery and quackery to a professional and scientific endeavor, and the growth of a civic institution.

My commute is awful. It's not terribly long, but I dread it. Audible has helped a lot, and no book has captivated me as well as this one. Fascinating.
