Book Summary of The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right

Acclaimed surgeon and writer Atul Gawande finds a remedy to tackle immensely complex problems with the humblest and simplest of techniques: the checklist. In riveting stories, Gawande takes us from Austria, where an emergency checklist saved a drowning victim who had spent half an hour underwater, to Michigan, where a cleanliness checklist in intensive care units virtually eliminated a type of deadly hospital infection. And he follows the checklist revolution into fields well beyond medicine, from disaster response to investment banking, skyscraper construction and business of all kinds.

About the Author
Atul Gawande is the author of Better and Complications. He practices general and endocrine surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. He is also a MacArthur Fellow, a staff writer for the New Yorker, and an associate professor of surgery at Harvard Medical School and associate professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the Harvard School of Public Health.

I somehow bumped into this book while doing my research on non fiction books. I did not spend more than 15 minutes in deciding to buy this book straightaway based on its reviews.The book gives an insight into a simple idea of maintaining a checklist to tiger trap the most overlooked trivialities...

Ahmed September 17, 2013 review from Goodreads

In his third installment, and as the name implies; Atul presents a simple idea that could very well be a cure for human fallibility and an effective strategy to overcome failures. The checklist.
