If you are familiar with the terms ‘value investing’ and ‘behavioural biases’ then chances are that you have heard about ‘checklists’ too. The idea of checklist has been made popular in recent times by Dr. Atul Gawande.
A surgeon by profession, Dr. Gawande is also a prolific writer and deep thinker. He is a staff writer at ‘The New Yorker’. Charlie Munger was so impressed with one of his article that he mailed him a $20,000 cheque as a thank you.
[Update: Dr. Gawande was recently appointed as the CEO of a healthcare venture formed by Amazon, J.P. Morgan and Berkshire Hathaway.]
Atul Gawande has written three other books chronicling his experience in medical surgery. Checklist Manifesto is his latest book which has resonated quite well with world of stock market investing and business analysis.
