Summary
Atul Gawande offers a gripping exploration of how doctors strive to close the gap between best intentions and best performance in the face of sometimes insurmountable obstacles. Gawande's vivid stories take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq, to delivery rooms in Boston, to a polio outbreak in India, and to malpractice courtrooms around the country. Offering a searingly honest account of a field where mistakes are both unavoidable and unthinkable, Better provides rare insight into the elements of success that illuminates every area of human endeavor
