Product description

Review

It has been years since I read a book so powerful and so thought-provoking ... Gawande is a gorgeous writer and storyteller, and the aims of this book are ambitious -- Malcolm Gladwell Riveting and thought-provoking -- David Aaronovitch * The Times * A welcome book ... packed with vivid writing, heart-stopping anecdotes and statistical surprises * Financial Times *

About the Author

Atul Gawande is a staff member of Brigham and Women's Hospital, the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, and the New Yorker magazine. He is also Associate Professor of Surgery at Harvard Medical School and Associate Professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health.
