Description: Intensive Care Specialist Dr David Galler is a man who on a daily basis has the opportunity to consider just what are the things that really matter. In the hands of this veteran Auckland physician, we journey through the hallowed doors of the Intensive Care Unit and into the lives of the patients and staff and beyond. From the nuts and bolts of bodies to the wider picture of New Zealand's health care system, it is not only the professional arena laid bare, but the personal too, particularly the story of his Polish Jewish refugee parents.

Subtitled 'stories of life and death', this is an enlightening and engaging book, refreshing in its blend of humanity and science.
