I have never read a case book with more acronyms! The authors use three letter abbreviations for EVERYTHING. Sure, I understand common health related acronyms like HMO and HHS, but throughout the 1500 pages, the authors managed to be quite excessive!! Aside from my minor qualm, the book is very informative and provides detailed explanations about variety of health law topics ranging from: roles and liabilities of health care professionals, control of cost, and the management of health care insurance. If you are unfamiliar in this area of the law, this reading book is a great way to become abreast of statutory, social, and policy issues within this area. The book is quite pricy (and not to mention heavy!) but it will make a great addition to your literary collection.

Over 1000 pages of judicial drawl. Congress should think about legislatively limiting the word count of judicial opinions. There is a lot of valuable information in the book, but it is presented in an impossibly long, impossibly boring, inpossibly complex and convoluted manner. A lot of caselaw, a lot of essays on health care delivery, a lot of theorizing on approaches to health insurance reform. Some information on ERISA, extensive coverage of Medicare and Medicaid. No science in the book. I would have been just as well off taking notes in class and never reading - nor buying - the book. I guess if you had do write a report, you could use the book...or you could use any other source.
