by James Surowiecki

Best Business Crime Writing Of The Yearis a report from the front lines of the war zone that has become American business today by some of our most talented and perceptive writers. Includes: * "The New Bull Market" by Michael Kinsley fromSlate * "In Praise of Corporate Corruption Boom" by Michael Lewis fromBloomberg News *"HardBall" by David McClintick fromForbes *"The Accountants' War" by Jane Mayer from theNew Yorker *"Enron Debacle Highlights the Trouble With Stock Options" by Thomas Stewart fromBusiness 2. 0 *"Investigating ImClone" by Alex Prud'homme fromVanity Fair

The Best Care Possible

by Ira Byock

A doctor on the front lines of hospital care illuminates one of the most important and controversial social issues of our time. It is harder to die in this country than ever before. Though the vast majority of Americans would prefer to die at home--which hospice care provides--many of us spend our last days fearful and in pain in a healthcare system ruled by high-tech procedures and a philosophy to "fight disease and illness at all cost." Dr. Ira Byock, one of the foremost palliative-care physicians in the country, argues that how we die represents a national crisis today. To ensure the best possible elder care, Dr. Byock explains we must not only remake our healthcare system but also move beyond our cultural aversion to thinking about death. The Best Care Possible is a compelling meditation on medicine and ethics told through page-turning life-or-death medical drama. It has the power to lead a new national conversation.

The Best Catch in Texas

by Stella Bagwell

They said he had striking looks-andNicolette Saddler certainly felt that something had struck her straight in the heart when she first locked eyes with Dr. Ridge Garroway. But Nicolette had had her fill of good-looking, sweet-talking men and she wasn't interested in another one, especially not a sexy cowboy doctor who had secrets of his own. Yet Ridge, unlike anyone she'd ever met, seemed to warm the coldness that filled her. Could he be a man worth catching once and for all?
