The Checklist Manifesto - Atul Gawande

This book is a call to action to use the humble checklist. Written and researched by a surgeon in the US, Gawande supports his idea with numbers from research including: at least 60 percent of patients with pneumonia receive incomplete or inappropriate care from their doctors. A checklist is a list of actions to be completed at a specific time. From its application in constructing a skyscraper to landing a plane, the book demonstrates how it could be used everywhere to deal with our world of extreme complexity. The key insight of this book is that checklists don't limit freedom - instead they provide a foundation for creativity and collaboration to flourish.
