Preparing for the Inevitable book cover
Preparing for the Inevitable
Why COVID-19 Crushed Us and How We Can Defeat the Next Pandemic
Scott Gottlieb - 2021-09-21
Calificación de Goodreads
"Preparing for the Inevitable" is an essential guide to how the US can prepare for future pandemics by learning from the mistakes made during the Covid-19 outbreak. Based on his experience as former FDA commissioner, Scott Gottlieb identifies key factors that hindered the US response to the pandemic, such as outdated plans and tools, lack of private sector involvement in manufacturing, and downplaying the threat. Gottlieb warns that without corrective action, the virus will continue to spread, impacting both public health and the distribution of a vaccine. "Preparing for the Inevitable" is a hard-hitting and informative inside account of a preventable failure in American history.

The book is a well written, meticulously researched view of the pandemic, seen thru the lens of a true insider. I finished w/ a deeper understanding of the systems failures (particularly @CDCgov but also FDA & others) that led to our awful response. We need to learn & do better.      fuente

Preventable book cover
The Inside Story of How Leadership Failures, Politics, and Selfishness Doomed the U.S. Coronavirus Response
Andy Slavitt - 2021-06-15
Calificación de Goodreads
"Preventable" is a must-read for anyone looking to gain an inside look at the U.S. Coronavirus crisis. Andy Slavitt, former Biden Senior Advisor, offers an unflinching investigation of the cultural, political, and economic drivers that led to unnecessary loss of life. With unparalleled access to key players on both sides of the aisle and people working on the frontline, Slavitt presents a story of bad leadership, political and cultural fractures, and an unwillingness to sustain sacrifice that lit a fuse difficult to extinguish. Written in the tradition of "The Big Short," the book puts forth solutions that will prevent us from facing similar crises again.

@ASlavitt Fan Club here: 1) Andy's book Preventable is splendid. It seamlessly toggles from inside dish (Birx, Trump...) to powerful reflections on US healthcare system & our society. Well worth a read. I'll interview Andy @UCSF grand rounds tomorrow.(1/2)      fuente
Recuerda que vas a morir. Vive book cover
Recuerda que vas a morir. Vive
Paul Kalanithi - 2016-01-12
Calificación de Goodreads
Recuerda que vas a morir. Vive es una inolvidable reflexión llena de vida de lo que significa enfrentarse a la muerte. «Cuatro palabras de Samuel Beckett empezaron a repetirse en mi cabeza: No puedo seguir. Seguiré.» A la edad de treinta y seis años, y a punto de acabar una década de residencia para obtener un puesto fijo como neurocirujano, a Paul Kalanithi se le diagnosticó un cáncer de pulmón. Pasó de ser un doctor que trataba casos graves a ser un paciente que luchaba por vivir. En este libro, cargado de positivismo, Kalanithi reflexiona sobre las grandes cuestiones de la vida mientras se enfrenta a la muerte. “La realidad de la muerte es inquietante, pero no hay otra manera de vivir”, Paul Kalaniti
