Teaser Tuesday 11/9

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along!

Just do the following:

  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • Share the title & author, too, so that others can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!
For something different for today's Teaser, I am sharing from Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science by Atul Gawande.
When things go wrong, it's almost impossible for a physician to talk to a patient honestly about mistakes. Hospital lawyers warn doctors that, although they must, of course, tell patients about injuries that occur, they are never to intimate that they were at fault, lest the "confession" wind up in court as damning evidence in a black-and-white morality take.
I am reading this for book club, as I so often happens when I read outside of my comfort zone.


  1. I bet this teaser is entirely true!


  2. Oh, I remember reading this--I had to stop partway through.

    My teaser is here: http://teabagsinfusion.blogspot.com/2010/11/teaser-tuesday-november-9.html

  3. Very true.

    Thanks for stopping by at my blog!

  4. Sounds like an interesting view from a seldom exposed source. :) Thanks for the tease.

  5. Here is my teaser from Expiation by Greg Messel (page 1):

    My sudden and unexpected return to Seattle was about to trigger a chain of events which completely change my life. Three months from this date my career, my life in San Francisco with my daughter and everything I had known before would be radically altered.
