In this, Crichton relates the history of hospitals through five examples of different aspects of medicine and technology. Of course, since it was written in like 1970, I am never sure whether or not anything he says is still kind of up-to-date or if 30 years have completely invalidated his thoughts on the "current" state of medicine. I also wound up thinking about ER a lot... still though, his writing is pretty readable even when he's going on and on about how much a day at the hospital costs in 1970... and it was short.|
