The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande

This is all about how checklists can save lives in hospitals by reminding hospital staff about the routine checks and procedures that must be completed, and also in the air by directing pilots how to deal with complicated situations.

The importance of checklists is convincingly argued, and yet it would have been helpful for Gawande to expand on the practical ways of making a great checklists to improve lives of us common civilians.

After reading this book, I have started making more checklists!
