Read in January, 2011

I am working on health care reform and wanted to read this to see what an industry insider had to say about health insurance companies. While I can't say I was surprised at the tactics and behavior detailed in the book, it was helpful to refresh my cynicism by reading such concrete examples of their profit-driven ways. The sad part is knowing how terribly their policies have impacted the lives of hundreds of thousands of people and how our newest excursion into health care reform will still be based on a platform that has profit as its bottom line. Wendell Potter writes well and clearly and I appreciate that he had the courage to turn his back on his companies and his former colleagues and tell the truth.
