Read from March 23 to April 06, 2012

Otis Brawley tells the personal stories of people both saved and harmed by the US healthcare system. What makes the stories compelling and more than anecdotes is after detailing the mostly harrowing accounts of one person's struggle with illness, he zooms out and gives the perspective of a practicing clinical oncologist, a researcher and the chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society. None of the players, be they patients, providers or suppliers are spared his critical assessment as he describes a system that is deeply, supremely in need of not just reorganization but revolution.
