Dr. Sanjay Gupta and Barbara Ficarra
I was thrilled to be invited to Dr. Sanjay Gupta’s book party at Rouge Tomate in New York City on December 14, 2009.
Many people were there to help celebrate the New York Times Best- Selling Author’s book, Cheating Death.
Larry King, Dr. Mehmet Oz, Deepak Chopra, Joan Lunden, Soledad O’Brien, Dr. Nancy Snyderman, and Cindy Adams were some of the many recognizable faces.
President of CNN, Jonathan Klein introduced Sanjay and I had the pleasure of meeting Philip Kent, Chairman and CEO of Turner Broadcasting.
It was a terrific event and I was honored to be there to help celebrate.
Stay tuned as I will be bringing you an interview with Dr. Gupta. Dr. Gupta was originally scheduled to be my guest on the Health in 30 Radio Show on October 15th, but I was live on-air with no guest. We shared a few laughs and I joked with Sanjay how Bonnie Hunt must have had him tied up since he was shooting a segment of her show prior to mine. Dr. Sanjay Gupta is one of the nicest people you could meet. Very down-to-earth and very humble.
Cheating Death is an intriguing book that deals with how science has made it possible to defy the odds and cheat death. From hypothermia techniques used in hospitals to new CPR techniques for the general public to the fascinating concept of suspended animation, Cheating Death is a fascinating read.
We would love to hear from you. Have you read Cheating Death? What are your thoughts?
