Overview: Better

Better: A Surgeons Notes on Performance by Atul Gawande is an honest narrative of a surgeon's thirst to achieve excellence in his field of work. The book is a clear picture of what goes into the life and work of a surgeon and what keeps him ticking. The book narrates the difficult situations a surgeon has to face and the consistent pressure to succeed always harps on him. The pressure of performing your best looms on every one of us; however not many of us feel the added pressure of saving lives. Atul beautifully captures these hard to describe situations in his book. The book also chronicles some of the failures the author has faced in his career and how he has risen above such dark situations to perform to the best of his abilities. The narrative is spine-chilling at times, recounting riveting details of incidents and situations. The reader will be taken on an adventurous journey of the life of a surgeon and will come back with an enriching experience. Perhaps, this line from the book will best describe it, "What does it take to be good at something in which failure is so easy, so effortless?" Atul Gawande, the author, is an assistant professor at Harvard School of Public Health and a surgeon in a leading hospital, in Boston. This paperback book is available online with the ISBN 10 number of 0312427654 and ISBN 13 number of 978-0312427658.
