Publisher's Summary

The unabridged audiobook of Complications by Atul Gawande.

This is a stunningly well-written account of the life of a surgeon: what it is like to cut into people's bodies and the terrifying - literally life and death - decisions that have to be made. There are accounts of operations that go wrong; of doctors who go to the bad; why autopsies are necessary; what it feels like to insert your knife into someone.

Rich descriptions

Brings decision-making and carrying uncertainty to life! Some of the stories are a little dated so can't use as text book, but the narrative is excellent
