Combined box set of all the bestselling books by Atul Gawande, acclaimed surgeon and writer

In The Checklist Manifesto, Gawande finds a remedy to tackle immensely complex problems with the humblest of techniques: the checklist. Through riveting stories from the fields of medicine to disaster response, investment banking to skyscraper construction and businesses, he demonstrates how the checklist can help anyone improve their own and others' lives.

In Being Mortal, Gawande argues that an acceptance of mortality must lie at the center of the way we treat the dying. Using his experiences (and missteps) as a surgeon, comparing attitudes toward aging and death in the West and in India, he provides an extraordinary account of loss. Questioning, profound and deeply moving, Being Mortal is a masterpiece.

In Better, Gawande's gripping stories take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq, delivery rooms in Boston, a polio outbreak in India, and malpractice courtrooms in the US. He discusses the ethical dilemma of lethal injections, examines the influence of money on modern medicine, and recounts the contentious history of hand-washing. And as in all his writing, he gives us an inside look at his own life as a surgeon.

In Complications, Gawande performs surgery on medicine itself, laying bare a science that is complicated, perplexing and profoundly human. Dramatic true stories explore how mistakes occur, why good surgeons go bad, and what happens when medicine comes up against the inexplicable.
