This book is well written and succinctly argued. It presents the issues in a way that is easy to understand. As a healthcare worker new to Canada, I'd picked this book up as contextual reading, so it didn't include the level of detail I was looking for. However, it was more relevant than I expected - I live in Alberta and it provided much information on the politics and history of private insurance in Alberta.

Good for the everyday reader, although I think it's potentially outdated at this point

Every Canadian should read this book. It should be mandatory reading for school children and university students
