It's all happening at Cleveland Clinic, one of the most innovative, forward-looking medical institutions in the nation. In this groundbreaking book, the man who leads this global organization, Toby Cosgrove, M.D., reveals how the Clinic works so well and argues persuasively for why it should be the model for the nation.
