The Checklist Manifesto


The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right
Atul Gawande
Audiobook read by John Bedford Lloyd

Have you ever wondered why some industries have many accidents and catastophes, and other industries have few? The latter might have fewer accidents because of their reliance upon checklists. For example, aviation and building skyscrapers have relatively few breakdowns because of their strict reliance upon checklists. While other professions such as surgerical medicine might benefit from the use of checklists. Atul Gawande, a respected surgeon, explores how checklists work and how they could improve professions of all kinds.
