    "Smart Patient" not smart enough

    I admire Mehmet Oz as an enlightened doctor and pro-consumer healthcare advocate. This book's jokey tone was a disappointment so I returned it - perhaps his co-author was a poor choice.

    Chock Full of Great [and Sometimes Surprising] Information

    This book is written well enough and is humorous enough to read straight through. But in case you just want to look up information on one issue, it has an adequate table of contents and a good index.

    Well written but reads like a novel.

    While this book is well written and contains useful information especially about insurance coverage, etc., the layout makes it very difficult to gather the information. With over 450 pages and the small size, it really does read like a novel rather than an educational ¿how to¿ book for patients. Additionally, while I have no doubt that the author is a very well qualified physician and the book was written with humor, this was obviously written from a physician's perspective and not a patient's perspective. I was hoping to find something more straight forward and easier to review. I also thought there would be more patient resources listed, but there weren¿t many listed in this book.
