This is a very good book on the topic. It delivers what it promises but I'd like to give my warnings/complaints:

It is very dense. Despite my passion for this subject, the amount of time I spent on each page is far longer than usual, even for academic literature. I feel as though I would need to re-read the book to really extract all the worthwhile information in it, but don't see myself being able to do that for quite some time. To read this book is a taxing affair.

Also, I grew weary of rereading some version of the phrase: "this process entailed such and such policy reforms and personal outcomes: deregulation of XYZ, public funding, increased privatization, worse personal health outcomes, increased cost per individual." While these outcomes are obviously at the crux of what the book is concerned with, I feel as though I have read the same sentence a few too many of times. It may have been desirable to write something like: "this resulted in the set of outcomes classically associated with neoliberal polices."

Aside from those two complaints, let me say that this book is highly valuable and I sincerely thank Waitzkin for writing it. It clarified much of what I had suspected and I believe it has both informed and positively impacted the way I will approach issues public health.

So again, if this sort of topic interests you and you are indeed dedicated to it, pick up the book and see what you think. It may address much of what you believed to be true, but it is helpful to see it put down in writing and exhaustively cited.

Thanks, Dr. Waitzkin, I look forward to your future works.
