Book Club: July 12th
Book Club to discuss An American Sickness
For July's Book Club, the host has selected Elisabeth Rosenthal's An American Sickness.
An American Sickness: How Healthcare Became Big Business and How You Can Take It Back is a new book about the American healthcare system. At a moment of drastic political upheaval, this New York Times bestseller is a shocking investigation into our dysfunctional healthcare system and offers practical solutions to its myriad problems. Dr. Elisabeth Rosenthal exposes the recent evolution of American medicine as never before. She doesn’t just explain the symptoms, she diagnoses and treats the disease itself. She spells out exactly how to decode medical doublespeak, avoid the pitfalls of the pharmaceuticals racket, and get the care you and your family deserve. This is about what we can do, as individual patients, both to navigate the maze that is American healthcare and also to demand far-reaching reform.
