American author Robin Cook promotes new book in Slovakia

Having arrived for a two-day visit to Slovakia on May 19, American writer and doctor Robin Cook presented his latest book Critical Condition, which hit Bratislava's bookstores on May 16. Cook said that he would sign books at the Panta Rhei bookshop in the Polus City Centre in Bratislava later on May 19. The new book concerns the danger posed by post-operation staph infections, which the author noted can be found in any hospital in the world. He stressed the importance of measures to prevent infections.

Cook, who is one of a small number of authors who have sold at least 120 million copies, said that he chose the medical environment as the theme of his books following the shock that hospitals are portrayed very differently on television.

"Medicine, hospitals and doctors can be very dangerous," he said, describing himself more as a doctor than a writer. TASR
