"You’ll close the book with an entirely new attitude and set of tools for making medical decisions… Groopman and Hartzband’s important book will help doctor and patient learn how each of us navigates our own tolerance for risk, thus improving outcomes on both sides of the examination table." — THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW (Daniel J. Levitin)

Your Medical Mind is a welcome and overdue comprehensive exploration of the patient’s perspective as he or she navigates the dizzying array of choices modern medicine presents.” — BOSTON GLOBE

“Part psychological study and part self-help book, Your Medical Mind doesn't provide answers but, rather, insights into navigating the increasingly daunting and dysfunctional world of medicine.” —

“A welcome guide for those who are daunted by the choices they face, ranging from taking a cholesterol-lowering drug to making end-of-life decisions for a loved one.” — WALL STREET JOURNAL

 “This important and riveting book could change—and perhaps even save—your life.”

Daniel Gilbert, author of STUMBLING ON HAPPINESS

“Bringing the deep sensitivity and outstanding clinical skill that characterize all of his writings, Jerome Groopman has joined forces with Pamela Hartzband to bring us a message of wisdom and far-ranging importance. The complexities that face any patient in making personal medical decisions are here described, analyzed and clarified by two master physicians, who guide us with empathy, sincere caring and wide experience.”


Sherwin Nuland, author of HOW WE DIE


An entirely new way to make the best medical decisions.

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.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Not what I expected, but still a useful book 21. November 2011
Von Carl E. Johnson Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I expected a more analytical, practical book. The subtitle, "How to Decide What Is Right for You," suggests something of an outline or blueprint. Instead, this small, well-written book, about 200 pages long, presents several handfuls of case studies of how apparently very sharp, apparently well-educated individuals with life/death illnesses made decisions about their medical care. We're not talking about treating the sprained ankle or sinus drainage. The physician authors, husband and wife Groopman and Hartzband, add their insights about the decision-making processes, and along the way throw in useful bits and pieces of information about the health care business complex. So, while the reader is not really given much of anything in the way of a decision-making process, he/she is still given plenty to think about by two thoughtful and caring practitioners. Surprisingly to me, money is not an object in any of the case studies, either from the standpoint of the providers, that is, doctors, hosptials, etc., (with the one obvious exception of the specialists who recommend their approach to the solution of the patient's problem) or from that of the consumer, that is, the patient and society as a whole who finance the ventures.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Flawed but useful 16. Oktober 2011
Von Donald Pasik - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I was disappointed with this book, and was going to award it only 2 or 3 stars. But, on second thought, I found some useful tidbits in it, and I believe that if it helps even one patient to arrive at a better choice of medical treatment, this book is well worth reading.

I won't summarize "Your Medical Mind" here, but would refer you to the excellent review posted recently by Dr. Davis Liu.

If you have time to read only one of Dr. Groopman's books, I would strongly recommend "How Doctors Think," which beginning to end gives valuable insights into medical decision making. The essential message there is that, even though nearly all doctors have the patients' best interests at heart and are fully competent in their respective specialties, doctors are likely to have some degree of tunnel vision which prevents them from tailoring the "statistically best" treatment to the individual patient. "How Doctors Think" gives the sage advice that patients are best served by being informed and proactive about diagnostic and treatment options.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Much More Than the Title Suggests! 31. Mai 2012
Von Crescent Limited - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
When I saw the title I was skeptical. The title greatly understates the power and importance of the data evaluation and analysis techniques described, discusion of the psychology of problem solving, and the really great section on handling living wills and end-of-life medical care. It is not a "how to do it", nor is it about stress management. Although it contains many insightful case histories, it does not imply that you should "do what they did" but helps you seek the needed knowledge and understanding of emotions, wants and needs, as well as your tolerance for possible bad outcomes.

I am encountering exactly the kinds of dilemmas it describes with my recently diagnosed prostate cancer, and it has renewed my hope for coming up with the best analysis and treatment.

I am buying a second copy for a good friend with a son dying of cancer (as well as having many serious health issues himself)

3.0 von 5 Sternen not exactly what I was looking for, but useful 10. August 2012
Von PawPaw1956 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The author seemed to jump from one patient to another and didn't really make a point. This book is probably better suited for a physician so they can be better listeners and realize that all people are not alike and they need to allow the patient to have opinions about their health. It more explains why people are compliant or not and how end of life decisions can change when it is really the end.
I was looking for something to help me with end of life decisions with my father and it really didn't help me at all. More like it frustrated me.
That said,it helped me to realize that I need to make my own wishes clear and write it down and yet understand that when the time comes,depending on circumstance, I may change my mind.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Everyone should read this book! 13. Juni 2016
Von Amy Feinman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
A must read for everyone who ever has to make a medical decision. Dr. Groopman gives you the inside minds of doctors and how patients think, even when they themselves are doctors. It will help you clarify where you stand in regards to your belief system, and allow you to make better decisions knowing what drives you.
