“Important and powerful...a rich tour of health care around the world.”--Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times
How is it that all other industrialized democracies provide health care for their citizens at a reasonable cost--something the United States has never managed to do? In The Healing of America, New York Times bestselling author T. R. Reid shows how they do it, bringing to bear his talent for explaining complex issues in a clear, engaging way. In his global quest to find a prescription for American health care, Reid finds that it's not all “socialized medicine” out there. Instead, many industrialized democracies rely on free-market models the U.S. could use to cure a health care system that has failed us.
