"My choice for the economics book of the year...it's the best description I have yet read of a huge economic problem that we know how to solvebut is so often misunderstood."David Leonhardt,New YorkTimesOur health care is staggeringly expensive, yet one in six Americans has no health insurance. We have some of the most skilled physicians in the world, yet one hundred thousand patients die each year from medical errors. In this gripping, eye-opening book, award-winning journalist Shannon Brownlee takes readers inside the hospital to dismantle some of our most venerated myths about American medicine. Brownlee dissects what she calls "the medical-industrial complex" and lays bare the backward economic incentives embedded in our system, revealing a stunning portrait of the care we now receive.Nevertheless,Overtreatedultimately conveys a message of hope by reframing the debate over health care reform. Itoffers a way to control costs and cover the uninsured while simultaneously improving the quality of American medicine. Shannon Brownlee's humane, intelligent, and penetrating analysis empowers readers to avoid the perils of overtreatment, as well as pointing the way to better health care for everyone.With a new afterword offering practical advice to patients on how to navigate the health care system.
