Cheating Death: The Doctors and Medical Miracles That Are Saving Lives Against All Odds (2009)

Dr. Gupta, both as a neurosurgeon and in his CNN correspondent work on the frontlines of some of the biggest tragedies of the last decade, has seen a lot of death. Fortunately, he's also seen a lot of cases of miraculous survival. In his second book he profiles patients whose inspiring survival stories were made possible, in part, by dedicated doctors who refused to accept death as an inevitability (even in the most seemingly hopeless cases) and who used the most current medical technologies to save their patients' lives. Among the compelling stories Dr. Gupta shares, while trumpeting the cutting edge medical advances that will continue to combat the fragility of life: a skier who lived after drowning for an hour in an icy lake; a teenager who outlived four large, growing tumors; and a man who was knocked out when he hit his head while hiking and wasn't found for 24 days -- and survived.
