Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science

Atul Gawande
In gripping accounts of true cases, surgeon Atul Gawande explores the power and the limits of medicine, offering an unflinching view from the scalpel’s edge. Complications lays bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is—uncertain, perplexing, and profoundly human. Complications is a 2002 National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction.

I found complications and interesting read. It is a glimpse into a surgeon's life oh, and how well he thinks he's doing. I was charmed by how forthcoming he was about making mistakes, striving to be the best he could be.
