Editorial Reviews

Steve Case, co-founder, AOL, and founder of Revolution LLC“Health care is poised to be revolutionized by two forces—technology and consumerism—and Dr. Eric Topol explains why. One-size-fits-all medicine will soon be overtaken by highly personalized, customized solutions that are enabled by breakthroughs in genomics and mobile devices and propelled by empowered consumers looking to live longer, healthier lives. Fasten your seat belts and get ready for the ride—and learn what steps you can take to begin to take control of your health.”James Fowler, Professor of Medical Genetics and Political Science, UC San Diego, and author of Connected“Eric Topol is uniquely positioned to write such a timely and important book. He leads two institutions—one in genomics and one in wireless health—that will each play a huge role in transforming medicine in the twenty-first century. From this vantage point, he can see unifying themes that will underlie the coming revolution in population and personal health, and he communicates his vision with vibrant energy. Everyone will want to read this book.”
