    Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is - complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human.

    T.K. says: "It's about time..."
    "it is a book on science"
    Overall

    This is a book on theory and practice of medicine and the philosophy of science that informs them. It would be wrong to read it as a consumer-oriented book. Read in proper light, one is impressed of Dr. Gawande's intellectual honesty and curiosity. It is very well written and very thought provoking.
