Another excellent book by Atul Gawande. I can't think of any other medical writer who comes even close to him when it comes to both recognizing and articulating the challenges faced by the profession of medicine. One of the biggest strengths of Dr Gawande's writing is that although he often gives data/evidence and mentions relevant studies/experts, he is also quick to point out the limitations of such data when it comes to the inherent uncertainty of medical decision making. Like his other works, this should be required reading for all medical students, residents, and even fully trained physicians.
