This is way off topic but this article appeared in this week's issue of New York Magazine and it is a worthwhile read.
The topics are broad - do we over-treat symptoms and treat to the test rather than dealing with the patient as a whole? - but it is written from the unique perspective of a husband of a patient. The husband also happens to be a cancer doctor.
When you're bored this weekend and you can't take hearing about how Dr. Dre is going to spend his billion dollars (a topic for another day) take the time to read - The Day I Started Lying to Ruth.
