Some interesting observations about medicine and health care that can be applied to performance in general. A good read.

I enjoyed this more than its predecessor (Complications). I found it inspiring how Gawande shows it is completely reachable to make major changes to medical practice that can help so many. Likeable for medical and non-medical type alike!
