He uses the tools of decision psychology and behavioral economics to explore topics like informed consent, shared decision making and health care spending. His books include Pricing Life (MIT Press 2000) and Free Market Madness (Harvard Business Press, 2009). Dr. Ubel’s newest book, Critical Decisions (HarperCollins), came out in September of 2012, and explores the challenges of shared decision making between doctors and patients.
