Book: Weekends at Bellevue by Julie Holland (being released in October 2009, I read an advanced reading copy)
About: Holland chronicles her nine years as an emergency room psychiatrist in New York's Bellevue Hospital's psychiatric ER.
Pros: Privacy / disclaimer in beginning. Interesting, sad, scary and amusing tales and patients.
Cons: Even with the included glossary, the many acronyms can be a bit much.
