Favorite Book of the Year: “The Healing of America,” by T.R. Reid


If you want an absorbing, fascinating, and fun book to read … if you want to sound (and possibly be even more) intelligent and well-informed when discussing health care systems around the world, and you don’t want to slog through zillions of pages in boring tomes, I highly recommend that you read:

T.R. Reid’s “The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care

This is a “I missed by bus stop!” sort of read (which is much better than saying, “whoops, I missed Minneapolis!”). Reid is a great researcher and storyteller (and very funny, at that – you might have enjoyed T.R. Reid’s other books or radio appearances.)

    I want to put in a plug for Mark Kleiman's “When Brute Force Fails: How to have less crime and less punishment” as the best book of the year. Short, well-written, and very important, especially as Oregon looks to be financially strapped for as far as the eye can see. I wish every single legislator and policy maker in the DOJ would read it.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I noticed that my home county's library doesn't have it, but a neighboring county's library does.
