My Favorite Medical Books for Leisure

These are some of my favorite medicine related books to read for leisure. A lot of Atul Gawande…okay it’s mostly Atul Gawande. But also a biography of cancer, what happens when a young doctor is diagnosed with cancer, and a little bit of philosophy. Great finds for anyone in or outside of the medical field alike.
