9780143122241: Your Medical Mind: How to Decide What Is Right for You

Making the right medical decisions is harder than ever. We are overwhelmed by information from all sides--whether our doctors' recommendations, dissenting experts, confusing statistics, or testimonials on the Internet. Now Doctors Groopman and Hartzband reveal that each of us has a "medical mind," a highly individual approach to weighing the risks and benefits of treatments. Are you a minimalist or a maximalist, a believer or a doubter, do you look for natural healing or the latest technology? The authors weave vivid narratives of real patients with insights from recent research to demonstrate the power of the medical mind. After reading this groundbreaking book, you will know how to arrive at choices that serve you best.

"This important and riveting book could change--and perhaps even save--your life."
--Daniel Gilbert, author of STUMBLING ON HAPPINESS
