Given to me as a joke by my housemates in 1999. It's sometimes interesting to look at it now.

Now I'm an adult Doctor as opposed to a Medical Student we look at intellegent root cause analysis of mistakes, and looking at ways to prevent them. All this book does is document mistakes and scare people. The section on 'wrong patient right operation' did mention the way that pre-op procedures have changed.
I don't recommend this book to anyone who is likely to undergo medical treatment unless you want to get very very paranoid. ( )
