    "This is a good solution to the topic. This book is one from Powell's Books Indiespensable Subscription to start. Based off of the reviews from Amazon it seems to be a very well liked book with some great reviews. Because books are so subjective it is hard to say what the best book would be but based off of the reviews this is a good solution to the topic. "

    "I've never been a big fan of Alice LaPlante. I admit she's a great writer but her subjects just don't interest me. I couldn't be convinced to care about the surgeon around which this story revolves."
