Recent books about health care in the US
Some books have the worst timing. Take last year’s huffy “Where’s the Birth Certificate?” which came out just before President Obama, oops, released his birth certificate. Or the flattering bio of Joe Paterno, painfully published this summer. Sadly, a great, even groundbreaking book had a similar fate. “Best Care Anywhere: Why VA Health Care Would Work Better For Everyone” debuted in the winter of 2007—just as the Walter Reed Army Medical Center exposé hit.
