Always hard reviewing your own book, so I have pasted comments from others below. The book expands on previous themes in my first book: Surgery, the Ultimate Placebo but applies them to medicine in general. It explains the problems with modern medicine but instead of blaming everyone else (industry, Big Pharma, insurers etc.) we focus on doctors and their role in creating a society that is over-dependent on an expensive medical system that often either doesn't help or harms those it touches.
To help navigate the world outside surgery, I had a co-author, Rachelle Buchbinder who is a rheumatologist, Professor of Epidemiology and a leading international academic with over 1,000 publications (including over 100 Cochrane reviews) and over a hundred thousand citations. The book was written for health professionals, the health industry and the general public. It was drafted during an academic writing residency at the Bellagio Centre funded by the Rockefeller Foundation in 2018 and made it to stores in October 2021.
The book can be found in bookstores in Australia and online (e.g., Amazon) anywhere.
Here are the reviews that can be found on the publishers website (NewSouth Publishing):
