Swept up in the rush of events, anxious about the prognosis, facing a blur of technical jargon, fatigued from worry or pain, people who are ill are easily overwhelmed by treatment choices. Told in eight gripping clinical dramas, [this book] reveals the forces at play in making critical medical decisions. Dr. Jerome Groopman illuminates the world of medicine, where knowledge is imperfect, no therapy is without risks, and the outcome is never fully predictable. It portrays moments of astute diagnosis and misguided perception, of lifesaving triumphs and shattering failures. These real-life lessons prepare us to traverse the uncertain terrain of illness, and enable us to balance intuition and information, and thereby make the best possible decisions about our health and future."@en ;
