Recommends it for: economists & people willing to skim through to the good stuff
Is all this health care we're providing in the U.S. improving collective health? Probably not, actually. Really interesting concepts and info; too bad the thing is nearly impossible to read. Stodgy, convoluted writing and ridiculously unnecessary econ graphs kill what could be an outstanding book. I feel like I want to re-write it for them in the spirit of The Economic Way of Thinking.
