Great book, as far as textbooks go. This is a very interesting book. I had to read the whole thing for a graduate school course (nursing). It is written in a very straight forward, readable style and explains things very well. It addresses many aspects of health care issues in the U.S. and also has a chapter comparing our system with those of a few other countries with similar issue and economies. Price was reasonable for a textbook. You will come away from reading this book supporting universal health care!

Thrilled! I got this book because it was required for class. It goes through all different models of healthcare and explains it with examples of patient cases. It also explains the differences between the US system and Germany, Japan, UK, and Canada. I now feel confident in my knowledge of exactly how different types of insurance models work… I am very happy I had to read this and this is one of the few books that I feel teach you a ton in the lightest way possible.
