New article by Atul Gawande

Haven't seen an article by Atul Gawande in The New Yorker in some time, but this week's issue brings relief. Really good stuff. The essay draws attention to a fact few doctors, hospitals, and patients like to acknowledge: quality of health care follows a bell curve, with mediocrity in the center.
Gawande's book Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science collects many of his earlier New Yorker essays and is one of my favorite books.
