NOOK Daily Find! How Doctors Think by Jerome Groopman for $3.14!

Well… Barnes & Noble has a new promo — the NOOK Daily Find: Today’s Great Book at a Great Price! So, Nook owners need not be envious of those with Kindles! 😉

And the new deal is…

How Doctors Think‘ by Jerome Groopman (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) is now available at the specially discounted price of $3.14 on the B&N Nookbooks site. Hopefully, Amazon will do a price match!

Book Description

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. This book is the first to describe in detail the warning signs of erroneous medical thinking and reveal how new technologies may actually hinder accurate diagnoses. How Doctors Think offers direct, intelligent questions patients can ask their doctors to help them get back on track.

Groopman draws on a wealth of research, extensive interviews with some of the country’s best doctors, and his own experiences as a doctor and as a patient. He has learned many of the lessons in this book the hard way, from his own mistakes and from errors his doctors made in treating his own debilitating medical problems.
How Doctors Think reveals a profound new view of twenty-first-century medical practice, giving doctors and patients the vital information they need to make better judgments together.

Looking for a Review of the new $75 Kindle?

Are you looking for a review for the just released $75 Kindle WiFi? One of my fave sites to check for reviews is Mobile Tech Review and they’ve got theirs up now from @LisaG! Check out the written review here! (I’ve also embedded the video review)

* This seems to be a nifty starter eReader for people who won’t need the keyboard much and were waiting for the readers to break the $100 barrier, but I think I’ll stick with my present Kindle! I’m looking to get the Kindle Fire instead (since I’m too cheap to shell out money for an iPad)!
