Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science by Atul Gawande
Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science

poste42, September 20, 2011

Atul Gawande elegantly lays out the argument that medicine is an equal mix of art and science. Doctors are flawed humans who have good days and bad, and who have to make important decisions sometimes on the spur of the moment. And science doesn't address the moral dilemmas they encounter on a daily basis. It's a really fast read that made me think differently about health care.

The Unnamed was haunting and tragic. I nominate it for the 2011 Puddly Award.
