Important and powerful...a rich tour of health care around the world." -Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times

How is it that all other industrialized democracies provide health care for their citizens as a reasonable cost-something the United States has never managed to do? In The Healing of America, New York Times bestselling author T.S. Reid shows how they do it, bringing to bear his talent for explaining complex issues in a clear, engaging way.

In `The Healing of America' TR Reid gives a tutorial on the basic types of health care systems in place around the world, and then tries to give an evenhanded analysis of what works in these systems and what doesn't. T.R. Reid travels to several representative countries and explains from both a patient and a provider perspective how health care is actually delivered in those nations.

In his global quest to find a prescription for American health care,

Reid

finds that it's not all "socialized medicine" out there. Instead, many industrialized democracies rely on free-market models the U.S. could use to cure a health system that has failed us.
