I'd like to recommend strongly the book, How Doctors Think, by Jerome Groopman, M.D.  Despite the fact that some of the diagnoses Dr. Groopman writes about are diseases and conditions with esoteric descriptions, the book is written for laymen.  Reading it and heeding its message would make the reader better able to communicate with his/her own physician(s).  I'm buying a copy for the med student in our family.
