From the world of milliseconds to the time in years and centuries, the author makes very good arguments of why it is often better to allow the right amount of time we have before we make a decision, especially for decisions that are not in our field of expertise. I think this book balances well with Gladwell's "Blink" which makes the argument that for an experienced experts a blink maybe all it takes.
At times repetitive but overall very interesting read. Very good narration.
Can be very helpful in live's decision-making
I have read all of Atul Gawande's books and must say this is a true masterpiece that should be required reading for all Americans who accept that someday they or someone close to them will age and die.
It is an eloquent and clearly written treatise not only honestly discussing the limitations of modern medicine, but providing a roadmap on helping love ones to navigate the end of life with self determination, joy and dignity.
