    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.

    Rebecca says: "not his best"
    "Good motivator to start using checklists"

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

    Concise explanation of checklist beginning, development and use in aviation, medicine, construction and others. Case studies and evidence provided make it a good audio book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The proof that the USAirways commercial flight that landed in the Hudson river was successful because of the use of checklists that were followed in this life threatening emergency and not totally reliant on human instinct.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The life saving actions performed by Dr. Gawande and his surgucal team to save his patient at the end of the book. If I ever need surgery I want to know that my surgeon is a user of checklists.
