    Highly Recommended

    A great read about how you as a patient can advocate for yourself and understand how doctors are trained to think in a certain direction.

    A Must read

    I'm not finished with this book but what I've read it's highly recommended. This book gives you an insight to the medical profession and how doctors thinking needs to be changed and what the patient can do to help themselves.

    I was surprised by how much I would enjoy this book. I'm not nor

    I was surprised by how much I would enjoy this book. I'm not normally someone who reads nonfiction medical books, but this was recommended to me by a friend of a friend. It's a fantastic read, with lots of interesting stories that illustrate what is wrong with the healthcare system and how it affects each of us.

    Healthcare today makes patients feel utterly out of control and powerless, and this book contains lots of tips like the 8 Pillars to Better Diagnosis for empowering patients to take back control. It's well-written with memorable anecdotes and filled with useful advice. I highly recommend it anyone who has ever seen a doctor or will plan to see one (that is to say, everyone!).
