The magazine Modern Healthcare reviewed Masterpieces in Healthcare Leadership edited by Vince Pelote and Lynne Route of daVinci consulting, and noted that once picked up, the reader will have a hard time putting the book down.

The focus of the book is on the offbeat, weird and sometimes crazy things that “masterpiece” healthcare providers do to improve patient care and service.
Reviewer Charles Lauer states about the book, “ Everyone, nurses, housekeepers, administrators and workers on the dock, knows that what they do plays an important role in the hospital’s reason for existence, taking care of people.” •

Law professor Tom Baker has authored The Medical Malpractice Myth, published by Univeristy of Chicago Press.

This book is easy to read and well written, and is a sourced explanation refuting the myth that there is a medical malpractice crisis in America. It is written by a credible author who objectively approaches the discussion from the perspectives of healthcare, the insurance companies, the legal community and politicians. The book is a must-read for nurse consultants, attorneys and healthcare professionals.
