They review several methods by which consumers can get the highest expertise from the health care provider, the most accurate diagnosing and prognosticating from diagnostic procedures, and the maximum dollar benefit from HMOs. Their book reads easily, and its descriptions of patient-physician interactions regarding a variety of illnesses are totally accurate. Very important issues are discussed, such as advanced directives, decision making about significant others with terminal illnesses, deciding about alternative interventions, and obtaining the "right" health care provider. There are also glossaries of common medical treatments and critical care terms. Clark and Evans have written an excellent guide to assist people in surviving the chaos of the health care delivery system of the '90s."--C. Grossman, Fairfield University; Choice, Mar 1 1999.
