Description

Making the right medical choices is harder than ever. Whether we're deciding to take a cholesterol drug or choosing a cancer treatment, we are overwhelmed by information from all sides: doctors' recommendations, dissenting expert opinions, confusing statistics, the advice of friends, and claims on the internet. Your Medical Choices shows us how to chart a clear path through this sea of confusion. Drawing on scores of patient case studies, as well as insights from psychologists, economists, and other experts, Drs Groopman and Hartzband help us to better assess the impact of our decisions. They reveal how our personal beliefs profoundly influence our choices, and expose the external factors - such as misleading narratives or statistics - that can lead our thinking astray. When conflicting information pulls us back and forth between options, when we feel pressured by doctors or loved ones to make a particular choice, or when we have no previous experience to guide us through a crisis, Your Medical Choices will prove an essential companion.
