Well written and researched book. Written in clear language by an author who has lived in other countries and had personal experience with other forms of health care than what is available in the US. Early on he gets down to the real nitty gritty question underlying the basic premise of national health care: the fundamental morality of a nation regarding its choice to provide health care for all regardless of ability to pay. He then compares health care outcomes, structures, pros/ cons, and profits/costs for the major models used globally to each other and to those models as used in the US. This was the information I was looking for and had such a hard time finding in the media. I highly recommend it.
