5.0 out of 5 stars.  Love this book, June 17, 2017
By Salesforyou!
Love this book. Very eye-opening to see the comparisons and differences between healthcare systems around the world, and how America can utilize what works well to create a better healthcare system where doctors provide quality care to all Americans.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A must-read for any thinking American, June 09, 2017
By Medimundo
This is a book that every American, especially all politicians at every level--national, state, and local--should read. T R Reid compares health systems of many of the advanced countries of the world and shows how and why the US falls short of countries like France, Japan, the UK, and Canada in terms of percentage of citizens covered by insurance and how efficiently healthcare is delivered. In the process, he debunks many misconceptions that Americans have about the choices citizens of other countries have in their healthcare and which ones practice the dreaded "socialized medicine." For the US to catch up to the world's leaders in efficiently delivered quality healthcare for all its citizens, Reid asserts that the US must first arrive a national consensus that there is a moral imperative to do so. He cites the example of Taiwan as a country with a well-developed capitalistic economy that in the 1990s made that national commitment and implemented the changes necessary in its healthcare structure to satisfy that commitment.

I hasten to add that Reid conducts his discussion of this most important of topics in a wonderfully clear and engaging way and amply documents the research that led him to his conclusions.

By Hugh Kenny
Instead of listening to the corporate propaganda that dominates the health care debate in America, read this book and then share it with all your friends and push for the universal health care we ought to have in this country. Universal coverage AND reduced cost is not impossible - it exists all over the world in developed countries.

5.0 out of 5 stars.  A "Must-Read", May 26, 2017
By Victor R. Ortiz
This is a must-read for anyone wishing to understand what it takes to create a healthcare system, not just a medical products and services industry. The narrative is clear, well organized, and lays waste to the disinformation at the heart of current "replace" proposals. Universal coverage and quality care actually take many forms and the US has an amazing range of globally proven best practices from which to create a uniquely American solution. But to do so, we have to slaughter a few sacred cows and take on a massive lobbying machine. This book provides an essential education about the range and advantages/disadvantages of systems around the globe.

By Linda A Barbee
Written before the implementation of "Obamacare," this book remains relevant as our nation struggles with "repeal and replace.". In an amazingly readable narrative, the author presents both a synopsis of the universal healthcare systems of other developed nations and a discussion of the barriers to it's implementation here in the US.
