really liked it
Read from July 10 to August 02, 2012

Another interesting book about physician performance. This jumped around from the spread of bacteria in hospitals and hand-washing protocol, to doctor assisted capital punishment. The thread that tied the chapters together: doctors who found ways to do things better...often going against conventional wisdom and finding innovative ways to improve their patients odds. Even if you are not a health care professional I think you can find ideas in this book to apply to your own profession. I would recommend it.
