  2. I could comment on a bunch of these (mostly just that I would like to read them, too), but I wanted to mention how much I loved The Checklist Manifesto–and also that I think it has the most improbable title for a good book imaginable! Have you read his other books? They’re excellent, too, but TCM was the first one I read. Can’t wait to read your book reviews this year!

    • I have read Gawande’s other books and really liked them. Knowing you liked The Checklist Manifesto makes me want to read it even more. What’s on your list this year?
