This is my third and favorite audiobook. I enjoyed the narrator, and it's the perfect type of content to listen to in this format. Nothing I'm trying to memorize, but learn from nonetheless.
I liked how he made his point through a different theme for every chapter. He tied everything up nicely in the last one. I liked best though how he gave us a very unique view of the healthcare industry.
Fantastic book, not Dr. Gawande's best - I prefer Complications and Being Mortal. However, if you're hungry for more and always enjoy his voice, definitely add this one to your list.
This was my first audiobook. The narration threw me off a bit, but that's just something I need to get used to. Otherwise, the story was fantastic and the narration was solid. Would highly recommend this book and Gawande's other books to anyone interested in learning more about medicine.
While it took a little while to get going, Gawande's points about the science of performance really hit home with me. As a premed student, I would recommend this to anyone who has an interest in medicine or simply how to improve or quantify performance in any field.
It's light on science and tech talk, but also engaging and thorough. I'll be looking for other works by this author next month.
This was a wonderful book that touched controversial as well as mundane problems in healthcare. All beautifully narrated into a great story. I found myself driving more so that I could keep listening.
I think if I heard him speak again, I would think he's Atul Gawande
Atul Gawande rocks the medical world.
I love the way he thinks, and challenges those in health care.
This book definitely has a strong concept to a very simplistic thought "Better". Very empowering book but I felt the author took a long medical approach on displaying the principles. This took away the simplicity necessary to grasp the concept. The concept applies to everyone regardless of profession and that could have been better exhibited.
As a pre-med student, this was a treasure. Even for the general public, this text has some truly remarkable messages and information.
Some sections are a little number-heavy, but the core is well worth it.
