This book is good and beneficial to both aspiring and practicing healthcare professionals. "Experience s the best teacher" they say.
If I was going to suggest an Atul Gawande book, it wouldn't be this one. His others are better. But even at his worst Dr. Gawande is head and shoulders above the best
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.
