    Story
    (122)

    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.

    Overall

    This book was excellent and the reader did a very fine job. I enjoyed it all; writer Atul Gawande provides an incredible store of data, and that, coupled with his wide knowledge and experience as a surgeon, made this book a wonderful experience. However, I may buy the hard copy now--just to to be able to go over all the information at leisure. I am a relative newcomer to audiobooks, but even so, I felt a bit overwhelmed. I can't praise Gawande enough. I read the paperback edition of his book Complications and would recommend that highly to readers too.
