Recent Comments "The Primal Prescription: Surviving The "Sick Care" Sinkhole"
I truly enjoyed this book. The first part details the history of health insurance and the bipartisan meddling that led to one government "fix" that required more government interventions that were actually caused by the supposed prior solutions. Why is health insurance usually tied to employment? Why is the FDA counterproductive? Why will the Affordable Care Act inevitably fail? These questions are answered in the first part of the book.After you're throughly depressed about the current state of [...]
This is a must-read book for all Americans that care about the healthcare debate. Some major takeaways:1) If you think that Obamacare was some gigantic divergence from existing health care policy, you're completely wrong. It was simply the next step in a long line (literally decades) of interference in health care by government. Every step has made it worse. Every solution has brought another problem which has brought another bad solution.2) Republicans and democrats both suck, they're both to b [...]
Everyone should read this book! It starts with the history of health insurance in the United States, goes through ways to stay healthy, and ends with how to get the most from health professionals despite the obstacles. It's easy to read and packed with useful and encouraging information to take control of your own health care. LOVED it!
Really great explanation of why the economics of the medical world are so wonky. Best of all, the book has an abundance of suggestions of what you, as an individual, can do about it.
Good book on how we got to where we are with the healthcare system and packed with some solid advice on how to live well to avoid the whole mess as much as possible. Biggest takeaway was how important a solid relationship with your primary care doctor can be. I'd highly recommend this to just about anybody who cares about health and the healthcare system in general.
Timely book to read considering all of the healthcare talk. If you find yourself discontented with the boilerplate phrases of our political elites concerning healthcare then you will find "The Primal Prescription" well worth your time.
Break past the sides the media wants you take by taking a sober look at what some people call The American Healthcare system.
This book does a great job giving a historical perspective to the many problems facing healthcare. It also gives some good ideas as to how to navigate the healthcare system in an effective way. I know this book doesn't sound super interesting but it was and I would recommend it to anyone.
I picked up this book mostly for the work of Robert Murphy who is a great economist and has a good knack for explaining complicated concepts and topics on different levels of understanding. I don't know much about McGuff and never heard of him, myself, before this book.This book is really two books in one and may not appeal to everyone. On one end you have Murphy's writing about the history of health insurance/healthcare in America, the Affordable Care Act, and government intervention in healthc [...]
Health through freedomThis book provides an overview of the healthcare system in the United States. It offers a history of government intervention in healthcare and how it leads to high cost, shortage of care and slow development of medical treatment. The book also offers good education about the medical field and how to best pick your doctor and decide on having treatment.You will learn many facts and methods to evaluate different types of treatments and select the right doctor.
Interesting but not enough new stuff for me.
First half much better than second half. Great summary of the health care and insurance markets.
