Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science
Oona D.'s review
May 26, 2010
I think of Atul Gawande as the Malcom Gladwell of medical writing, his essays are really interesting, entertaining and easy to read. It's so refreshing to find a thinking, philosophical practicing doctor who questions everything that a patient would question about the medical establishment. He has a sense of curiosity about his own profession in the thick of working as a surgeon and encountering "complications" daily. It makes me happy that this doctor is musing on being a doctor, If I ever need a high-level surgeon I'm going to invite him to work on me.
