Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande
Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance

craymond3, June 2, 2007

My wife gave me this prior to an upcoming operation. Gawande's comments hit home. I appreciate his concerns and perceptions and sets me up to keep my eyes and ears open while in the hospital. His details about the current military medical system from Iraq to Walter Reed were enlightening. His experiences in India were noteworthy and engaging, especially his comments about treatment of a hydrocephalic child.
