    We live in a world of great and increasing complexity, where even the most expert professionals struggle to master the tasks they face. Longer training, ever more advanced technologies - neither seems to prevent grievous errors. But in a hopeful turn, acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy in the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Checklist Manifesto in three words, what would they be?

    It is easy


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dr. Athul,
    Very human, compassionate and open to his and others limitations.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The day in a Boston Hospital when he tried to use the Checklist in preparation for surgery and discovered its limits and went back to drawing board to refine it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really, it made sense and was very human.


    Any additional comments?

    Great story, many anecdotes that make the checklist real and doable. It really does unify a mission/purpose and strengthens teamwork!
