This book does a great job explaining how American health policies developed throughout history, but without infesting it with much of the bias many current textbooks use.It's concise, tells you what you need to know, and does it in interesting ways. I read this book in my Master's in Public Health program and reference it now, in my doctorate, more than any other book.

This book goes way too far in to detail on things that don't matter. The book is a collection of chapters written by different people, so the style of writing changes dramatically as you go through your respective course. It was a decent book, I'm not that mad about having had to suffer through it, but I wish that they would just be more direct about what everyone needs to know. No one cares about the details of how certain bills were passed 30 years ago. Instead it should focus more on specific organizations, and how they interplay into politics specifically. An example would be a chapter on just the AMA and what they do etc.

Not a bad book, not a good book, somewhere in the middle.

Quite Frankly, It is almost as if I were reading a opinion piece. Probably the most politically biased text book I have had to read. It is a Republican bash fest from start to finish. Just give us the facts and let us formulate our own opinions. Is that too hard to ask?

Had a lot of reading to do in this book, the information is very dry but very informative. After taking detailed notes throughout the class and I was able to get an A in the class and even kept the book and use it periodically to refer to old cases.

I needed this book for a class and it arrived promptly and in great shape. I purchased it new and thus expected high quality, but it's always a relief when it gets here in time!
