How Doctors Think

How Doctors Think

How Doctors Think is a window into the mind of a physician and an insightful examination of the all-important relationship between doctors and their patients. In this myth-scattering work, Jerome Groopman explores the forces and thought processes behind the decisions doctors make. He pinpoints why doctors suceed and why they err. Most important, Groopman shows when and how doctors can - with our help - avoid smap judgements, embrace uncertainty, communicate effectively, and deploy other skills that can profoundly impact our health.




"A unique, important, and wonderful book ... You'll never look at your own doctor in the same way again."
- Steven D. Levitt and Stephen J. Dunber, authors of Freakonomics

"[Groopman's] task is to offer practical advice to both patients and physicians. He succeeds at both."
- Washington Post Book World
