The Checklist Manifesto

Book: The Checklist Manifesto
Author: Atul Gawande
Reviewer: Venkitasubramanian Akshay, student, Industrial and Systems Engineering, NC State

A simple solution to a complicated world. This book is an exciting read for anyone who is looking for an excuse to discover the power of simple Post-its and how it has transformed the world around us. Beautifully written, this is by far the best book I have read this year

One Response to “The Checklist Manifesto”

  1. Kyle O'Donnell says:

    Echoing Venki’s comments, Atul is a masterfully concise and entertaining author. In a world of ever more complicated systems, creating an intuitive checklist that engages the mind, rather replacing thought with a list of all possible responses, increases productivity and saves lives.
