Review quote

Gawande is a writer with a scalpel pen and an X-ray eye.... Diagnosis: riveting."--"Time" magazine Praise for "Complications" "Gawande is arguably the best nonfiction doctor-writer around."--"Salon.com " "Remarkable...A new and different voice, bringing to modern high-tech medicine the same clinical watchfulness that writers such as Williams and Sacks have brought to bear on the lives and emotions of often fragile patients." --Sherwin B. Nuland, "The New York Review of Books"
