From time to time, some medical publisher treats me to a couple of martinis. Nothing is free, I wait for the question. After the pleasantries, it comes. "What kind of textbook of medicine is needed today?" Which is a genteel translation of, "How can I strike it big?" His question is not rhetorical. Nor is the answer obvious; if it were, he would be wasting three dollars on one martini for him and two for me.
Any answer, on the textbook of internal medicine or any other medical discipline, for tomorrow or five years from now would be little more
