Your Life Depends on It: What You Can Do to Make Better Choices About Your Health by Talya Miron-Shatz

Did not finish book. Stopped at 14%.
I think this book is written on an incredibly important topic: how to increase health literacy, how to be more proactive about our health and treatment choices, how to engage in dialogues with our healthcare providers and fully understand what they and we are doing in the name of health. This isn't a "how to have good health" book; rather, it is a book about "how to evaluate health recommendations and resources" book. That said, I'm a healthcare practitioner and studying to be a physician. The principles in this book are built into my career and my studies. I simply didn't want to spend my leisure time reading a book that is already part of my academics. It also reads rather drily, unfortunately. I didn't feel engaged with the book at all.
