NATIONAL BESTSELLER

 

The New York Times bestselling author of Being Mortal and Complications examines, in riveting accounts of medical failure and triumph, how success is achieved in a complex and risk-filled profession

 

The struggle to perform well is universal: each one of us faces fatigue, limited resources, and imperfect abilities in whatever we do. But nowhere is this drive to do better more important than in medicine, where lives are on the line with every decision. In this book, Atul Gawande explores how doctors strive to close the gap between best intentions and best performance in the face of obstacles that sometimes seem insurmountable.

 

Gawande’s gripping stories of diligence, ingenuity, and what it means to do right by people take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq, to labor and delivery rooms in Boston, to a polio outbreak in India, and to malpractice courtrooms around the country. He discusses the ethical dilemmas of doctors’ participation in lethal injections, examines the influence of money on modern medicine, and recounts the astoundingly contentious history of hand washing. And as in all his writing, Gawande gives us an inside look at his own life as a practicing surgeon, offering a searingly honest firsthand account of work in a field where mistakes are both unavoidable and unthinkable.

 

At once unflinching and compassionate, Better is an exhilarating journey narrated by “arguably the best nonfiction doctor-writer around” (Salon). Gawande’s investigation into medical professionals and how they progress from merely good to great provides rare insight into the elements of success, illuminating every area of human endeavor.

Advances in diagnosing and treating congenital heart disease, through cardiac medicine as well as surgery, have allowed many children, who formerly would have died, to survive through childhood and in many cases into adulthood. As a result, cardiologists are spending an increasing amount of time treating such patients, both children and adults, and consequently there is a real need for up-to-date and comprehensive information on this rapidly evolving area.

 

The extensively revised and fully-updated new edition of this classic text continues to provide unparalleled guidance on all of the clinical features of unoperated congenital heart disease, from birth through to adulthood. Written by a world-renowned authority on congenital heart disease, it offers complete coverage of the signs, symptoms and clinical manifestations of malpositioned, malformed or absent cardiovascular chambers, vessels and valves – using traditional as well as state-of-the-art technology.

Discusses the history, anatomic features, and physiologic consequences of unoperated congenital heart disease in each chapter.

Features the expertise of world-renowned authority on congenital heart disease, Dr. Joseph K. Perloff.

New chapter on Congenital Abnormalities of the Pericardium

Expanded material on genetics and developmental biology

Discussion of hot topics such as Ebstein’s Anomoly of the Tricuspid Valve

Over 1,200 illustrations – all either new or reworked – enabling clear visualization and recognition of malformations

In this era of fad diets, detox programs, and “superfoods,” this examination of the relationship between diet and lifestyle looks to the Far East to claim that the simple principles to live by are balance and moderation. By rebuilding the connections between what is put into the body and how it functions, the diet outlined in this book teaches the daily effects that particular food choices will have–on bodyweight, energy, mood, and the quality and duration of life–and that ultimately all foods are good in the right proportion. All major food groups are covered, with additional sections on dietary supplements, lifestyle, and attitude, plus a handful of recipes to demonstrate the principles of the diet.
