Overview

There's a disease that's crippling America's health care: bureaucracy. And with the Obama administration's plans for a socialist expansion of medical benefits, the prognosis for our future is grim. So You Want to Cure Health Care? The Medicine May Be Too Bitter is an eye-opening and rousing call to arms written by a doctor who's been in the trenches for more than four decades. Mixing unique personal experience with prescient warnings and insider insight, this slim volume offers a thorough critique of why government's involvement is almost always bad medicine. And then it goes one further by suggesting ways to resuscitate our ailing system. You'll learn:

-How we got here: Uncover the milestones that put us on the track to socialist medicine
-Why it's not just government: Discover how hospitals, doctors, and the pharmaceutical industry allowed this to happen
-Why medical schools are a problem - and why they should be fundamentally changed to keep America healthy
-The real impact of frivolous lawsuits, and what type of tort reform is needed
-Why we need to get back to a fee-for-service model if we're to regain our stature as a health-care leader

This little guidebook is a must-have companion to the intensifying debate on health care.

Dr. John M. Sherman has been a physician in El Paso, Texas, for four decades and was involved in the early promotion of health care IRA's in the 1980s. Since then, he has devoted himself to medical missionary work in Central and South America and around the globe. His first two books, The Treasure Within and Mission Gourmet, chronicled many of his experiences.
