His newest book, Bouncebacks: Medical and Legal (Summer 2011), is an in-depth exploration of 10 “bounceback” cases which went to jury trial or settlement with medical and legal commentary. The Resident's Guide to Ambulatory Care (6th edition, December 2008) is a handbook of management strategies for common ambulatory conditions.

Dr. Weinstock has lectured extensively on medical topics and risk management issues and has developed a unique risk management tool: The Rule-of-Two’s.
