Editorial Reviews

Review

"Dr. Jerome Groopman is bringing out his most essential book yet, HOW DOCTORS THINK." Boston Phoenix

"A highly pleasurable must-read." Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Every reflective doctor will learn from this book...every prospective patient will find thoughtful advice for communicating successfully Publishers Weekly, Starred

A book to restore faith in an often-resented profession, well enough written to warrant its quarter-million first printing.
Booklist, ALA

A cogent analysis of all the wrong ways his fellow practitioners are trained to appraoch the patients they treat.
Elle

A sage, humane prescription for medical practitioners and the people who depend of them. O, The Oprah Magazine

“Splendid and courageous…Groopman lifts the veil on the most taboo topic…the pervasive nature of misdiagnosis.” -- Ron Chernow, author of ALEXANDER HAMILTON, TITAN, and THE HOUSE OF MORGAN

“Groopman has written 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. Dubner, authors of FREAKONOMICS
