Book: The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande
About: Gawande sets out to create a checklist for surgeons to use that would cut down on surgical errors. He draws on piloting an airplane, building construction and cooking as fascinating examples of where checklists are used with great success.
Pros: Quick, very interesting, well written.
Cons: Cites sources by page number, I would've preferred in-text cites.
