Publisher Description

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.

Monday Mornings, by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, follows the lives of five surgeons at Chelsea General as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M. It is on Monday mornings that reflection and introspection occurs, usually in private. It is Monday Mornings that provides a unique look at the real method in which surgeons learn - through their mistakes. It is Monday Mornings when, if you're lucky, you have a chance at redemption.

Monday mornings

I work in a large hospital and this is in sync with the under currents I have always felt existed. None of us are free from the stresses of the outside world even though ours is such an all consuming one, sometimes we feel we exist differently than others. This shows the humanness of even neurosurgeons, at the end the simple things of life, a leaf, a child's laugh, an autumn evening are the beautiful things in life. Thank you Dr Gupta for this compelling read. Joyce RPh

The first 72 pages are captivating enough to convince me to buy the book. Well written, well developed characters, and interesting plot.
