    Hey guys, I'm looking for a casual read. It doesn't have to be in any particularly branch of med, just something that you've found quite interesting and would deem a recommendable read. Are there any authors that you'd recommend?

    If you want a laugh, try Trust Me, I'm a Junior Doctor. Although it gets quite depressing towards the end...

    'Complications' by Atul Gawande; it's about his experiences as a surgeon - some of the cases were very interesting

    For a fascinating and extremely well-written sciency book, try Genome by Matt Ridley. If you're more interested in physiological stuff you could try "Life at the Extremes" by Frances Ashcroft. Oliver Sacks is always good, and of course there's always Dawkins. If viruses interest you at all I've just started reading "The Invisible Enemy", and it's pretty good.

    Why don't you have any spare time? What do you do on weekday evenings and weekends?
