New Atul Gawande Collection


Is there anything Atul Gawande can´t do? He works as a surgeon at one of the most prodigious academic hospitals in the world; he has published dozens of fascinating medical-related essays in the New Yorker, his second book is about to hit the shelves, and he is the father of three undoubtedly brilliant and beautiful children. All that, plus great taste in music! The New York Times discusses his second book and ipod playlist today.

If you have not read any of Gawande´s essays, I recommend that you correct that ASAP. His first collection, Complications, is widely available. Or, click here to read Naked, a short essay about the physical exam that was originally published in the New England Journal of Medicine in 2005.

I am on vacation, by the way. In addition to coveting Atul Gawande´s talent, I am catching up on book reviews online and exploring the Western Guatemalan highlands.
