Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science
Author Atul Gawande
Complications Giving an account of the life of a surgeon, this book looks at what it is like to cut into people's bodies and the - literally life and death - decisions that have to be made. It includes chronicles of operations that go wrong; of doctors who go to the bad; why autopsies are necessary; and what it feels like to insert your knife into someone.
