Hot Lights, Cold Steel: Life, Death and Sleepless Nights in a Surgeon’s First Years
by Dr. Michael J. Collins
I subscribe to a number of mailing lists featuring books on sale. I find many really good books this way and this is how I found the book Hot Lights, Cold Steel: Life, Death and Sleepless Nights in a Surgeon’s First Years.
I found the book to be a fairly standard medical memoir, following Dr Collins as he begins and ends his residency in orthopedics at the prestigious Mayo Clinic.
This book is well-written and worth reading if you enjoy medical memoirs. It isn’t the best medical memoir that I’ve read, but it’s well worth your time if this is your bag.
Rating: 4/5 stars
