One of the readers of Asystole sent me a link to an article she wrote, "The 20 Essential Biographies for Medical Students".
I've only read two on the list, My Stroke of Insight and Hot Lights, Cold Steel, both of which were very good---especially My Stroke of Insight. Seeing the list made me wish I wasn't cramming for the USMLE* because it looks like a very interesting collection that I'd like to dig into, today!
So if you're looking for some medically related summer reading, check it out and let me know if / when you read any of them. Thanks for the link, Carol!
