Monday Mornings: A Novel (2012)

Dr. Gupta's first work of fiction was so well-received that, less than a year after its release, a TV drama based on the book (produced by Emmy winner David E. Kelley) will debut on TNT. The book, though fiction, still incorporates Dr. Gupta's real-world experiences -- in this case, his work as a neurosurgeon. Focusing on a group of surgeons at Chelsea General Hospital, the action follows the titular Monday morning meeting the doctors attend each week. It's during these Morbidity and Mortality conferences ("M&M," as they call them) that the surgeons review their work from the previous week, hashing out the mistakes they've made and the lives that might have been lost because of them, and the ways they will learn from those mistakes for their next patient's sake. Dr. Gupta has shared, through his book, a look into a world most of us know nothing about, but one that, for these surgeons, is a matter of life and death on a daily basis.
