Overview


The Washington Post’s must-read guide to the health care overhaul

What now? Despite the rancorous, divisive, year-long debate in Washington, many Americans still don’t understand what the historic overhaul of the health care system will—or won’t—mean. In Landmark, the national reporting staff of The Washington Post pierces through the confusion, examining the new law’s likely impact on us all: our families, doctors, hospitals, health care providers, insurers, and other parts of a health care system that has grown to occupy one-sixth of the U.S. economy.

Landmark’s behind-the-scenes narrative reveals how just how close the law came to defeat, as well as the compromises and deals that President Obama and his Democratic majority in Congress made in achieving what has eluded their predecessors for the past seventy-five years: A legislative package that expands and transforms American health care coverage.

Landmark is an invaluable resource for anyone eager to understand the changes coming our way.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Everyday Health
“I have been perusing several resources to clarify the changes to health care and the benefits to the American people. The ones that have helped me the most are the April 5, 2010 issue of Time, the May 2010 issue of Money, and a new book written by the staff of the Washington Post: Landmark: The Inside Story of America’s New Health Care Law and What It Means for Us All. This book is by far the best resource I have read to date. The table of contents reads like a Frequently Asked Questions list, and it covers every question you could possibly think of related to the new health-care reform.”
 
CHOICE, November 2010
Landmark is must reading for those impacted by the new law—everyone…Highly recommended.”
