NPR's Lynn Neary has selected Cutting for Stone as one of the best books written in 2009 for a book club. Abraham Verghese, MD, a Stanford medical school professor, wrote Cutting for Stone.

Neary writes:

This book is very much about what it means to be a doctor and what it takes to be a good one. Verghese, a practicing physician, spares no details in revealing the inner workings of the world of medicine. His descriptions of often complex medical procedures are both harrowing and fascinating. . .

Verghese has written two other (nonfiction) books: My Own Country and The Tennis Partner. My Own Country is one of my favorite books.
