"This intriguing perspective on the obscurity of medicine-is highly recommended for health-care professionals, health-conscious patients, and well-informed consumer health readers."
Library Journal, starred review

"[Snowball in a Blizzard is a] carefully argued, unsettling, and important work."
Publishers Weekly

"In writing, Hatch strives to find 'that sweet spot where readability and scholarliness overlap.' He succeeds, telling stories that clarify the points he's making, and he even includes a highly personal anecdote that shows him struggling to deal with doctors who were sure they knew the right treatment for his elderly, hospitalized father. Hatch ably reveals the shortcomings of medicine."
