Wall of Silence: The Untold Story of the Medical Mistakes That Kill and Injure Millions of Americans.
Written by a program officer at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and a health economist, this book chronicles real stories of victims of medical mistakes. Written in a popular style and in an advocate's tone, experts may find the analyses of individual errors and discussion of policy implications a bit superficial; the book's major contribution is putting a human face on medical errors.
