A very famous book.. while reading it myself the idea grew more and more on me that there is a lot more to a working relationship then the points the author makes in this book. The author does make a very valid point about understanding the differences in psyche between men and women in a relationship. The book sort of suggests that understanding that difference is the key to an ideal working relationship and I beg to differ because in my opinion there is a lot more. I'm not sure whether to suggest this book to other people.

Five Patients is ER in real life--circa 1969, when Crichton graduated from medical school. Five different patients are examined at Massachusetts General Hospital; each patient's story illustrates some larger aspect of the hospital system. Thus, Ralph Orlando's death from cardiac arrest engenders a brief history of the modern hospital and emergency ward. Jo... Rest of this review on the detail page
