Reviews

I don't know if Atul Gawande was born to be a surgeon - I very much suspect so - but he was certainly born to write.This wise and exciting account of life as a surgical resident ... perfectly captures the wonder and fearful responsibility that come with cutting people open in the hope of making them whole again. -- Bill Bryson
Ever wondered how realistic ER is? Then read Gawande's superb book. The truth, you will find, is far more compelling, though the endings are never as neat ... Gawande makes the scenes far more dramatic than television ever can. He is a first-class writer. * Scotland on Sunday *
Written as tautly as a thriller. * The Observer *
Gawande draws you in with the story but leaves you wiser about science, about health, and even about the human condition. -- Michael Kinsley
