All doctors and most patients should read this, 8 Jan 2010
This should be mandatory reading for all doctors, medical students and much of the health service-using public too. Atul Gawande has great clarity of thought and this very readable book crystallises many of the problems of providing and receiving health care. It is also a very enjoyable read---his humility and his clear fascination for his subject make this so enjoyable as well as informative.
