  • ""On average, a physician will interrupt a patient describing her symptoms within eighteen seconds. In that short time, many doctors decide on the likely diagnosis and best treatment. Often, decisions made this way are correct, but at crucial moments they can also be wrong - with catastrophic consequences. In this myth-shattering book, Jerome Groopman pinpoints the forces and thought processes behind the decisions doctors make. Groopman explores why doctors err and shows when and how they can - with our help - avoid snap judgments, embrace uncertainty, communicate effectively, and deploy other skills that can profoundly impact our health."--Back cover."
  • "Groopman ci racconta alcuni di quei casi che, nel corso della sua lunga esperienza di dottore ma anche di paziente, gli hanno svelato i sottili meccanismi che possono condurre un medico a formulare una diagnosi errata. E il risultato è una sorta di "romanzo medico" capace di insegnare a tutti i suoi lettori, siano essi dottori o pazienti intimiditi dalla "scienza medica", come l'esame clinico possa davvero diventare il momento fondamentale per ritrovare la salute."
