    Story
    (134)

    Atul Gawande explores how doctors strive for best performance in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles. His stories of diligence and ingenuity take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq, to labor and delivery rooms in Boston, to a polio outbreak in India, and to malpractice courtrooms around the country. He discusses the ethical dilemmas of doctors' participation in lethal injections, examines the influence of money on medicine, and recounts the astoundingly contentious history of hand washing.

    Bonneville says: "Unfocused & Rambling"
    "Will likely help change the face of medicine"

    Checklist Manifesto


    What does John Bedford Lloyd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I think if I heard him speak again, I would think he's Atul Gawande


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Atul Gawande rocks the medical world.

    I love the way he thinks, and challenges those in health care.
