“A captivating, eminently readable narrative built around his personal quest to determine if anything makes sense in the $1.8 trillion system. Kessler packages all of this in addictively short, thriller-like chapters woven with a breezy, nouveau-gonzo style.” Read the review here (subscription required).
Kessler is great company throughout his briskly paced quest. True, there's too much dialogue here and everyone he meets is a bit too quotable and colorful; in fact, the whole enterprise is pretty casual for someone trying to solve the nation's biggest crisis. But Kessler offers a genuinely fresh take as well as a glimpse of where we're headed, makeing for a valuable contribution.
And finally a quote from Ian Morisson, healthcare author, consulatant and speaker:
"Provocative, profound and profane, exactly what I look for in a book. Andy Kessler brings a fresh new perspective to the quest for faster, better, cheaper healthcare. This is a must read for anyone who wants an inside look at the emerging future of medicine."
