Marty Makary is a surgeon at Johns Hopkins and author of Unaccountable: What Hospitals Won’t Tell You and How Transparency Can Revolutionize Healthcare. He tells Bob that if medical errors were a disease, they would be the sixth leading cause of death in the US, just behind accidents and Alzheimer’s.
Then, Bob talks with best-selling writer Ken Follett. Follett’s books have sold more than 100 million copies, and tonight his novel World Without End debuts on the small screen. A historical epic set in medieval England, this ReelzTV miniseries stars Cynthia Nixon, Miranda Richardson and Charlotte Riley. Bob also talks with Follett about his most recent novel Winter of the World: Book Two of the Century Trilogy. [Broadcast Date: October 17, 2012]
