A year or ago I mistakenly placed a review for Gawande's book Better under this title I have fixed the mix up and I have now read ComplicationsGawande is pure pleasure to read His writing is fluid and full of germane examples as he addresses big issues like error and incompetence as well as topics that seem less significant but which he makes worthy of consideration such as blushing and nausea The headings for each section of the book Fallibility Mystery and Uncertainty are thematic in the text As one reviewer wrote Thank heaven someone wrote this book Gawande is unapologetic and totally direct in his appraisal of medicine What I really appreciate is that in Better which he wrote after Complications he gives eual time to discussing ways in which medicine can improve I'm a fan A good writer and a good doc What could I ask for

204 but as it actually is uncertain perplexing and profoundly human  Complications is a National Book Award Finalist for Nonfiction. Not uite a 4 star read but close enough It's fairly short does make his major points fairly well They boil down to medicine isn't perfectDoctors are humans so need to learn will make mistakes even with the best intentions Do I want a doctor to learn on me or mine Hell no Gawande admits that he doesn't either he makes sure they don't BUT we won't get any new ones if they don't start somewhere So what's the solution There isn't a good one Deal with itPatients are humans so they're complicated They do things that are bad for them all demand the highest level of care Since the mid 80's they've been getting say in what their treatment is often they're not well euipped to do so either due to ignorance or just feeling like crap Balance between what the doctor recommends what the patient wants is toughMedicine has come a LONG way in a short time but they still don't know a lot As it becomes complicated it's tougher for doctors to stay on top of even their specialty Unspoken but obvious in the subtext is that it takes people to do the job a lot depends on every one thing's availability doing their job properly Facilities are often stretchedOverall it was an interesting tour inside the field from a young surgeon's point of view I think this was his first book it suffered a bit from that It's also a bit dated in some respects having been written 15 years ago or so Still it's well worth reading

Complications A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect ScienceIng an unflinching view from the scalpel’s edge Complications lays bare a science not in its idealized form Complications A MOBI #. Although I am interested in the medical profession motivation to learn about it often elludes me Gawande was able to keep my attention and present points that I could understand in spite of my limited medical knowledgeAdmittedly some of his information scared me After reading some points about surgery I wondered how I ever allowed anyone to cut into me and place a plate and seven screws in my leg Also some of his writing made me sueemish I had to pause or skip places that became too graphic for my weak stomach Some of his writing discouraged me Why am I trying to lose weight if no one is able to succesfully lose weight and keep it off unless they are dangerous and intensive surgery I also felt discouraged over the problems he presented that really have no attainable answersIn spite of my difficulty with his unanswerable uestions I appreciated Gawande's straightforward honesty about the medical profession and its weakness Ironically his admission of the fallibility of doctors and medicine makes me willing to approach a doctor It makes it easier for me to ask uestions if I don't expect the doctor to have all the right answers especially if that doctor is willing to admit such a possibility
