Hardcover ✓ Crisis ePUB Ò Robin Cook a pseudonym of Robert William Arthur CookDr Robin Cook born May 4 1940 in New York City New York is an American doctor novelist who writes about medicine biotechnology and topics affecting public healthHe is best known for being the author who created the medical thriller genre by combining medical writing with the thriller genre of writing His books have been bestsellers on the New York Times Bestseller List with several at 1 A number of his books have also been featured in Reader's Digest Many were also featured in the Literary Guild Many have been made into motion picturesCook is a graduate of Wesleyan University and Columbia University School of Medicine He finished his postgraduate medical training at Harvard that included general surgery and ophthalmology He divides his time between homes in Florida New Hampshire and Massachusetts where he lives with his wife Jean He is currently on leave from the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary He has successfully combined medical fact with fiction to produce a succession of bestselling books Cook's medical thrillers are designed in part to make the public aware of both the technological possibilities of modern medicine and the ensuing ethical conundrumsCook got a taste of the larger world when the Cousteau Society recruited him to run its blood gas lab in the South of France while he was in medical school Intrigued by diving he later called on a connection he made through Jacques Cousteau to become an aquanaut with the US Navy Sealab when he was drafted in the 60's During his navy career he served on a nuclear submarine for a seventy five day stay underwater where he wrote his first book 1Cook was a private member of the Woodrow Wilson Center's Board of Trustees appointed to a six year term by the President George W Bush2edit Doctor NovelistDr Cook's profession as a doctor has provided him with ideas and background for many of his novels In each of his novels he strives to write about the issues at the forefront of current medical practiceTo date he has explored issues such as organ donation genetic engineeringfertility treatment medical research funding managed care medical malpractice drug research drug pricing specialty hospitals stem cells and organ transplantation3Dr Cook has been remarked to have an uncanny ability to anticipate national controversy In an interview with DrCook Stephen McDonald talked to him about his novel Shock Cook admits the timing of Shock was fortuitous I suppose that you could say that it's the most like Coma in that it deals with an issue that everybody seems to be concerned about he says I wrote this book to address the stem cell issue which the public really doesn't know much about Besides entertaining readers my main goal is to get people interested in some of these issues because it's the public that ultimately really should decide which way we ought to go in something as that has enormous potential for treating disease and disability but touches up against the ethically problematic abortion issue4Keeping his lab coat handy helps him turn our fear of doctors into bestsellers I joke that if my books stop selling I can always fall back on brain surgery he says But I am still very interested in being a doctor If I had to do it over again I would still study medicine I think of myself as a doctor who writes rather than a writer who happens to be a doctor After 35 bookshe has come up with a diagnosis to explain why his medical thrillers remain so popular The main reason is we all realize we are at risk We're all going to be patients sometime he says You can write about great white sharks or haunted houses and you can say I'm not going into the ocean or I'm not going in haunted houses but you can't say you're n

    Hardcover ✓ Crisis ePUB Ò crisis download, Crisis PDFAt the risk of being CRITICAL let me just state that Robin Cook’s novel CRISIS is convoluted enough and has than enough medical mumbo jumbo to place it at the top of your list of books most likely to put you into a COMAW

    Hardcover ✓ Crisis ePUB Ò crisis download, Crisis PDFI hadn't read a Robin Cook novel since Coma in the 80s and so was somewhat surprised to discover that not only is he still alive but he has an ongoing series about a couple of New York Medical Examiners and that the twelth instalment comes out in December This is number six but apart from the background story of the relationship between them it would seem each book stands alone and explores a different aspect of modern American medicine I got this from Book Club and it's been on my shelf for a year I only started it because I thought I wouldn't get very far and could get it off the shelf but unlike many other reviewers I was rapidly intrigued and keen to know how things turned out Unfortunately the rest of

    Hardcover ✓ Crisis ePUB Ò crisis download, Crisis PDFI was disappointed in this book I thought the outcome was way too predictable I had it figured out from nearly the beginning but since it took so long to build up to the conclusion I had hoped there was going to be to it and I would be wrong I also felt like a big part of the story line was not explained at the end I guess I can assume the purpose of the particular story line but I felt like since it was given such a big part of the book that it should have been tied up at the end Also being a court reporter I was excited at the references made to the court reporter in the book but was d

    Hardcover ✓ Crisis ePUB Ò crisis download, Crisis PDFQuite possible the best Cookbook I've read I think this is my fourth?? Still a great performance by narrator George Guidell The pacing here was much faster and the subject interesting I was concerned for a second at we'd spend this entire novel in the courtroom but gratefully that wasn't the case My only complaint of any would be that I am actually still unclear as to the ending I mean what happened? Lol

    Hardcover ✓ Crisis ePUB Ò crisis download, Crisis PDFI dislike Robin Cook as a writer I feel that he is preachy redundant and an over user of medical terminology which laypeople cannot comprehend perhaps without having first read many of his other novels or being a previous medical student It was hard to keep focus and it took me a lot longer to read than it should have for its size I kept putting it down out of boredom As thrilling as his fans claim his writing is I cou
