Publisher's Summary

In The Decision Tree, Thomas Goetz proposes a new strategy for thinking about health, one that applies cutting-edge technology and sound science to put us at the center of the equation. An individuals Decision Tree begins with genomics, where $400 and a test tube of spit provides a peek at how your DNA influences your health. It taps self-monitoring and collaborative health tools, where iPhone applications and next-generation monitoring gadgets can help individuals successfully change their behavior, once and for all. And it turns to new screening techniques that detect diseases like cancer and diabetes far earlier and with far better prospects for our health. Full of thoughtful, groundbreaking reporting on the impact personalized medicine will have on the average patient, The Decision Tree will show you how to take advantage of this new frontier in health care.

    "Interesting take on medical care"

    The Decision Tree is better read than listened to. The narrator, Joe Plummer, did a fine job. But... The author gives a lot of practical information that, for me, required taking notes. Something I was unable to do listening to it on a treadmill. So, 4-1/2 stars for content and narration. Two stars for the format.
