Atul Gawande - Complications


I have just finished reading this excellent book. I can highly recommend it.
At first when I heard about it I was sceptic. Subject is very delicate and difficult to portray. I was afraid that the book would be addressed to the general public but to my very positive surprise it is so well written that it is a great read for both general and medical readers. Book is presenting a number of interesting medical cases and doing it in a very absorbing way. Atul not only describes the cases but uses them to discuss various delicate issues we, doctors, are dealing with in our daily practice. I very much agree with the points of view presented by the author.
Looking forward to read more from Atul Gawande.
Great job! Thank you.
