“Apfel and Fisher raise important questions about the explosion of modern medical technology.  They vividly delineate the factors contributing to experimentation with new techniques and drugs and how the pressures experienced by physicians, coupled with their fantasies of heroism, meld with pressures from their patients to tempt them to take risks prematurely. The volume is provocative and effective.  It should be read by all who take part in the health care system, patients and their caretakers.” –Carol Nadelson, M.D., Journal of the American Medical Association
