Praise

"You’ll close the book with an entirely new attitude and set of tools for making medical decisions… Groopman and Hartzband’s important book will help doctor and patient learn how each of us navigates our own tolerance for risk, thus improving outcomes on both sides of the examination table." — THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW (Daniel J. Levitin)

Your Medical Mind is a welcome and overdue comprehensive exploration of the patient’s perspective as he or she navigates the dizzying array of choices modern medicine presents.” — BOSTON GLOBE

“Part psychological study and part self-help book, Your Medical Mind doesn’t provide answers but, rather, insights into navigating the increasingly daunting and dysfunctional world of medicine.” — NPR.org

“A welcome guide for those who are daunted by the choices they face, ranging from taking a cholesterol-lowering drug to making end-of-life decisions for a loved one.” — WALL STREET JOURNAL

 “This important and riveting book could change—and perhaps even save—your life.”

Daniel Gilbert, author of STUMBLING ON HAPPINESS

“Bringing the deep sensitivity and outstanding clinical skill that characterize all of his writings, Jerome Groopman has joined forces with Pamela Hartzband to bring us a message of wisdom and far-ranging importance. The complexities that face any patient in making personal medical decisions are here described, analyzed and clarified by two master physicians, who guide us with empathy, sincere caring and wide experience.”

 

Sherwin Nuland, author of HOW WE DIE
