Customer reviews

By Ben Aston 27 Jan 2014 4

I'm an Australian doctor, so some of what Groopman says doesn't apply to our system. There were one or two comments which really jarred with me, and suggested perhaps that Groopman totally failed to understand the concept of evidence based medicine.

Overall however, the book raises some very interesting points and is a good read.
