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.

VA Emergency Department Director review

5 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 10-28-10

I was able to listen to the book in 3 days walking to and home from work. Essential content is easy to understand and process from audio format and I will build checklists into our practice in NY. Implementing these concepts could improve ED care nationally and are similar to the American Heart Association courses focused on resuscitation and treatment of seriously ill and injured patients. Well done Dr. Gawade.
