“A sophisticated and thought-provoking consumer update for those inclined to captain their own medical destinies.” —The New York Times

“In an era where the explosion of medical information has far outstripped our ability to process it, we need a new way to make health choices. Goetz shows that way with a clarity, verve, and intellectual depth that is both fascinating and wise. This book will change the way you live and the way you think.” —Chris Anderson, author of The Long Tail and Free

“Thomas Goetz writes more clearly and presciently about innovations in predictive medicine and the future of health care than anyone on the planet.” —Dean Ornish, MD, author of The Spectrum and Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease

“When should we get a CT scan? Why does Weight Watchers work? Should we be scared about the advent of personal genomics? Which cancer screening tests are worth the cost? Thomas Goetz takes us to the frontiers of modern medicine to answer these and other pressing questions, providing patients and doctors with a new framework for thinking about medical decisions. This book will change the way you think about your health.” —Jonah Lehrer, author of How We Decide and Proust Was a Neuroscientist

The Decision Tree is a game-changer. A brilliant synthesis of science, public health, and practical advice that puts each of us at the center of our own health care revolution. The best decision you can make? Read this important book.” —Dr. David Kessler, author of The End of Overeating
