Inhaltsangabe

Sometimes in medicine the only way to know what is truly going on in a patient is to operate, to look inside with one's own eyes. This book is exploratory surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science not in its idealized form but as it actually is - complicated, perplexing, and profoundly human.

Atul Gawande offers an unflinching view from the scalpel's edge, where science is ambiguous, information is limited, the stakes are high, yet decisions must be made. In dramatic and revealing stories of patients and doctors, he explores how deadly mistakes occur, why good surgeons go bad. He shows what happens when medicine comes up against the inexplicable: an architect with incapacitating back pain for which there is no physical cause; a young woman with nausea that won't go away; a television newscaster whose blushing is so severe that she cannot do her job. Gawande also ponders the human factor that makes saving lives possible.

At once tough-minded and humane, Complications is a new kind of medical writing, nuanced and lucid, unafraid to confront the conflicts and uncertainties that lie at the heart of modern medicine, yet always alive to the possibilities of wisdom in this extraordinary endeavor.

Kritikerstimmen

"Gawande's sharp eye, crisp prose, and insightful understanding make his book as enjoyable as it is edifying." ( Los Angeles Times )
"Diagnosis: riveting." ( Time)
"These exquisitely crafted essays, in which medical subjects segue into explorations of much larger themes, place Gawande among the best in the field." ( Publishers Weekly)

Atul Gawande: Complications

Beeindruckend geschrieben und hervorragend von William David Griffith vorgetragen. Am Besten genießt man das Buch als Hörbuch mit dem Taschenbuch in der Hand. Auch Nicht-Medizinern wärmstens empfohlen. Es regt an auch das Nachfolgebuch 'Better: A Surgeon's Notes on Performance' zu lesen. 5 von 5 Sternen

Extrem spannend!

Selbst wenn man die medizinischen Begriffe im Englischen oft nicht kennt, kann man den einzelnen Geschichten und Episoden sehr gut folgen und die Inhalte verstehen.
Schöne Erzählstimme!

Must read

Must read for everybody working in a medical profession! Recommended for everybody else as well!
(Although i wasn't a big fan of the music at the end and the beginning of each chapter..)
