** Slow Medicine by Victoria Sweet

Slow Medicine: The Way to Healing┬ácome after God’s Hotel, but it encompasses the author’s life both before and after her stint at the San Francisco sub-acute hospital that was the focus of the first book. Her thesis is the same: that by providing medical care both aggressively and without coordinating between the different health care actors, we ultimately provide poor care, and at great cost. The best parts of the book, as was the case for the first one, are the ones when she describes patients and her experiences, especially during her training. Her harangues are less successful (although they are considerably tamer than my memories of the earlier book).
