"[T]he chapters present a comprehensive overview... [They] contain valuable information for researchers of medical decdision making, bringing together the topics that matter to help improve medical decisions... What makes this volume valuable...is that the reader is tempted to look further than at her/his primary topic of interest. Theorists will learn of practical applications...and designers of computer support will be informed about policy matters. European Association of Decision Making Bulletin
"...a valuable contribution to the field." Applied Cognitive Psychology
Decision making is a crucial element in the field of medicine. Decisions made by physicians, patients, health policy makers and health insurers determine the quality of health care that is needed and provided for. Decision Making in Health Care is an up-to-date, comprehensive overview of the field of medical decision making- -a rapidly expanding field that includes quantitative theoretical tools for modeling decisions, psychological research on how decisions are actually made, and applied research on how physician and patient decision making can be improved.

Unfortunately, this book does not pass the same test. It is a great treatment of the topic, but certainly doesn't fit the definition of "interesting," "engaging," or "a real page-turner."
If you aren't very interested in medical decision making as a field of study, you should find something that is more accessible.
