I'm reading Blind Eye, a true crime account of physician serial killer Michael Swango.
What it says about the clanishness (not to mention hubris) inside the medical profession is chilling.

I'm currently reading a book called "Brida" by the Brazilian writer Paulo Coelho. It's an interesting and captivating book about love, magic and searching, taking place in Ireland during the 80's.
