Frequently bought together

We revolt because our health -- our very lives -- matter. Why We Revolt does not serve as a blueprint but as an inspiration for patients and clinicians who are ready to pry open the idea of "healthcare" and make it about actual health and care. This book is a necessary catalyst for conversations that will revolutionize patient care.
- Kerri Sparling, diabetes patient advocate and creator of sixuntilme.com
This profoundly humanistic examination of what has gone wrong in medicine has the diagnosis just right. This book is for everyone who will ever be a patient, for every health professional, and for every administrator and policy-maker.
- Gordon Guyatt, physician and researcher, father of evidence-based medicine
I went into medicine to interact with real, unique, emotive humans. Why We Revolt brings healthcare back to this primary love of and care for patients.
- Sara Segner, medical student
Montori begins with a gut punch that stays with you throughout this powerful, sobering, eye-opening book. After expertly diagnosing the roots of "industrial healthcare" problems, he passionately plots a patient revolution. Policy makers, clinicians, patients, and journalists should set aside the very little time needed to absorb this gem and learn from its lessons.
- Gary Schwitzer, journalist and publisher of healthnewsreview.org

This series of personal essays does far more than any extensively bibliographed scientific article in identifying the challenges, opportunities, and absurdity of our present situation. While not specifically calling for a social movement, this book provides many of the points we need to use in engaging in the conversations and discussions which will fuel the revolution needed, and it needs to start from the perspective of those most impacted---the citizens we care for as health care practitioners.
Many may be offended or upset, but I found this book to be liberating---identifying in eloquently written terms the issues we need to address. Indeed, we often speak of the "elephant in the room" and Dr. Montori has identified many of those elephants. The value of this book for me will be in it's ability to support my efforts, as limited as they are. Indeed, a clarion call, and a beautifully written one, from a man who carries his convictions and passions as a badge of courage, and encourages us to do the same.
A must read, no matter what your perspective and background.
Take away from the book: We need to find out what the patient's goals are and what they need from us to successfully manage their conditions. We need to find out what they are willing and ABLE to do. We need to show compassion and every turn and acknowledge and support ALL efforts and progress our patients make. We need to partner with our patients rather than show our disappointment when goals aren't met. We are all on the same team.
This book should be required reading for all medical students. Keep up the great work Dr. Montori!
In this book you will not only read his thoughts, but also his personal journey and interactions he has had with a multitude of people. This book is filled with compassion but also a call to action to integrate "care" back into the healthcare industry.
