Read it in 3 days and have recommended it to 5 people including my personal physician who went to UTMB for his training also. The author refers to two conditions that I have had. Scoliosis which I still have and osteomyelitis for which I was cured. I am glad to see these get mentioned The majority of the book deals with pointing out the chasm between those who have access to decent health care and those looking at financial ruin. It's not a clinical study of the battle being raged in Congress about Obamacare but rather vignettes of both sides that the Doctor has personally experienced, Highly recommended to those who have no medical knowledge but want to understand what the clowns in Washington are dealing with so poorly. It's not a technical book full of jargon but one that deals with the subject in a humane and thoughtful manner.
