    Not Original, Not Cohesive, Not Worth Your Time

    I found myself in a B&N bookstore in Atlanta this past weekend and picked up this book off an end cap display. The title intrigued me both because of my interest in surgery and the concept of dying. The only reason I continued to read the entire book after the first chapter was to possibly find a plagiarized paragraph after noting a very simliar sentence refering to 'Jimmy Durante' as to one in a book I read a while ago by Dr. Ira Byock, M.D. The author scatters her thoughts and jumps around the entire book, never fully giving any description justice or fully reflecting on morality like she promised in the title. Its ok though, her first profession is a surgeon and from her biography she sounds like a great one. Her experiences are definitely interesting, but she really does not convey them properly. Overall, I was disappointed with her lack of originality, the disjointedness of the chapters, and complete lack of literary skill and poise.
