Summary

The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right | Summary

Book Preview:

Over nine chapters, Gawande makes a detailed and persuasive argument for the use of checklists, not only in surgery, but also in other fields where their use is not as widespread, such as aviation and construction, which have made checklists mandatory. As a consequence of his interest in implementing checklists during surgery, the World Health Organization put Gawande in charge of a team which investigated a trial of surgical checklists over eight countries. This trial showed to most people their great worth, to the extent that over 2,000 hospitals globally, including 10% of US hospitals, have introduced them.

Dreadful narration

Good messages but the narration was dreadful. The narrator cannot read a whole sentence in one go; she stops every few words and her intonation goes up and down. It is so distracting!
I wouldn’t recommend it for that reason.
