    Over nine chapters, Gawande makes a detailed and persuasive argument for the use of checklists, not only in surgery, but also in other fields where their use is not as widespread, such as aviation and construction, which have made checklists mandatory. As a consequence of his interest in implementing checklists during surgery, the World Health Organization put Gawande in charge of a team which investigated a trial of surgical checklists over eight countries.

    Acemoglu's theory and explanation of the differences in global prosperity are as enlightening as they are entertaining. He manages to make the puzzling concept dead simple to understand because the book, rather than a lengthy lecture explaining the theory, is a series of examples supporting it. After the first chapter, you will fundamentally understand the concept and theory behind this book, and each subsequent chapter will support the theory in fascinating ways.

Hoffman presents the events in such a way that raises the stakes of each operation to its peak.

    In The Secret Life of Bees, the narrator's voice is quite convincing as a 14-year-old girl. Sue Monk Kidd uses a straightforward style, adding small remnants of magical realism to incorporate the bees, as well as the strange string of events that brings Lily and Rosaleen to the Boatwright house. Using historical markers - like the Civil Rights Act - Kidd manages to keep the story grounded in real events, counterbalancing a few eccentric elements, like the pink house and a non-traditional view on religion.
