Overview

Your Medical Mind: How to Decide What Is Right for You by Jerome Groopman, Pamela Hartzband

Making the right medical decisions is harder than ever. We are overwhelmed by information from all sides—whether our doctors’ recommendations, dissenting experts, confusing statistics, or testimonials on the Internet. Now Doctors Groopman and Hartzband reveal that each of us has a “medical mind,” a highly individual approach to weighing the risks and benefits of treatments.  Are you a minimalist or a maximalist, a believer or a doubter, do you look for natural healing or the latest technology?  The authors weave vivid narratives of real patients with insights from recent research to demonstrate the power of the medical mind. After reading this groundbreaking book, you will know how to arrive at choices that serve you best.

In this book one will not find quick tips and definitive advice for making difficult medical decisions. What one will find, however, is a very articulate, well reasoned, and compelling case for why incontrovertible facts are elusive in modern medicine. The authors state and prove brilliantly the necessary subjectivity of medical decisions. While this book will surely not give comfort to those seeking hard and fast answers, it does provide a pathway for considering and coping with difficult decisions.
