    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
    Would you listen to The Checklist Manifesto again? Why?

    Yes, definitely. There is so much rich material in this, so much that is quotable, when talking to old school health professionals who think that health care is simply about their being an expert. Even experts are humans.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Checklist Manifesto?

    The way aviation example are so delicately tied to medical examples.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Hmm. Some of the terminology was spelt out where it could have been said as a word, eg ECMO is not pronounced E.C.M.O. in healthcare, just ecmo.


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

    The background story behind the world's most life saving surgical innovation.


    Any additional comments?

    Any surgeon who reads this book and is not converted should be... well... fired.
