“A fascinating and infuriating exposé.
“Maintaining that the health care industry needs to answer first to consumers and then to insurance and pharmaceutical companies, David Goldhill persuasively argues that a consumer-driven system—which will require greater vigilance and commitment on the part of citizens in actively managing their health—is the first step toward sustainability and lower individual and governmental costs.
“Deftly avoiding political land mines, Goldhill takes a fittingly clinical approach, examining the intricacies of Medicare and the Affordable Care Act before presenting his vision of recipient-based care. Goldhill’s reasoned, logical alternative to the current system goes beyond political finger-pointing, and while his take is sobering, it’s one that offers sound solutions.”
—PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, a starred review
“Goldhill thinks it’s time to rip off the colossal Band-Aide and apply a different kind of balm.”
—Tony Miksanek, BOOKLIST
