This was a lengthly nonfiction account of the evolution of medical care in the United States. It goes into great detail (sometimes more than I need, but sometimes less). As lengthy as it is, I am left with the feeling that I only understand the broad trends. I really enjoyed the segments where the author talked about how the incentives facing each party (doctors, hospitals, insurers) affected the development of the industry.
