New Atul Gawande book

Yay! One of my favorite writers has a new book out. Better: A Surgeon’s Notes on Performance comes out this week and is now on its way to me from Amazon. He's also the subject of a NYT article today.

Gawande's first book, Complications, is one of my favorites of all time. Everyone I've recommended it to has loved it. He's a brilliant surgeon and a beautiful writer. Can't wait to read the new one.

I listened to an interview with Atul Gawande on the Scientific American's Science Friday podcast on 4/18/07. Having a research interest in the history of medicine, I found it facinating. I can't wait to read the book!
