Neither of the authors of Medical Malpractice is a physician, which may explain the sobering exposition on the medical malpractice crisis presented in this book. Mr Sloan, a Duke University economist, and Mr Chepke, an attorney serving as a research associate at Duke, methodically debunk common misconceptions held by many within the medical community, while offering potential remedies for the ills that plague the current system of resolving medical negligence claims. Medical Malpractice may not find an enthusiastic readership among practicing physicians convinced of the evils of medical malpractice litigation, but the book is certainly relevant and may be of tremendous import to those in the policy-making realm.
