Atul Gawande: The Man Behind "Complications"

Updated 2015-12-06

Merry Christmas! I hope everyone reading this is having a happy holiday.

As you may have noticed from the quote on the sidebar, like many students, I am a fan of Atul Gawande. For those of you who haven't read this book Complications, it is a great book describing the life of a surgical resident. However, even if that isn't your field of interest, the book is still an engaging read with a sober look at the harsh realities and present state of medicine and medical education. If you're interested in the book, check this out:

If you've already read the book, or just want your Christmas present, well.. here it is: Slate articles written by Gawande before he got big. They're still quite interesting, even if a bit dated. Enjoy!

Update: Gawande has also been a staff writer at The New Yorker since 1998. Many of Gawande's New Yorker articles form the source material for his books.
