Review of MDM:APG

October 13th, 2009 by Alan Schwartz

Doody’s Review Service, widely used by medical libraries, now has the first formal review of Medical Decision Making: A Physician’s Guide. Here’s an excerpt:

“a thoughtful exposition of the breadth of the medical decision issues to which the analyses of decision theory have often been applied. The authors’ approach to medical decision making ensures that readers from different backgrounds understand the concepts by expressing them in words, elaborated with concrete numerical examples and graphs, instead of expecting symbolic formulas to communicate….This book has the potential for teaching practicing physicians to make good decisions and to make decisions well.”
