This book is explosive. I warn you right now that if you have a heart condition, high blood pressure, or are prone to fits of anger...do not read it.
Buy it for a friend. But do not read it. I am a smart person. I thought I was pretty wise about what goes on behind closed doors.
When I saw Keith Oberman interviewing Michael Moor and Wendell Potter...I got a slight idea of the mean and totally organized methods these companies use
to discredit people who might be dangerous to their profits. But I had no idea that health insurance companies actually hire people to kill us. 123 people
die every day due to a lack of health insurance. That's about 45,000 people a year.
The techniques revealed in this book by a man who actually implemented them himself are disgusting. How can people do this to other people? We declared
war on a country that we thought was responsible for killing 3000 people on 9/11. We lock up murderers and execute some. How do insurance company executives
get away with killing 45,000 people a year who don't have insurance? They have fought health care reform for many years and even FDR, Nixon, Carter, and Clinton
could not get it passed due to the methods of public relations used by these companies. Their executives retire with the last year of salary of 22 million dollars
and stock options, while they are denying claims to their customers.
They use the most scientific methods of public relations, polling, and advertising to lie to the American people and to our representatives. They have front
organizations with nice sounding names that are fake. How can we allow these companies to continue to exist? Is there no law that covers killing by denial of treatment?
Is there no law that covers deception and dishonesty to block laws from being made?
Wendell Potter is the man who tells us the sordid story. I don't know whether to love or hate him. He did it for so many years and it took a movie by Michael Moore to
wake him up. I guess it is better late than never. But you will read this book and the country will go on and kill another 45,000 people this year.

Holy smokes, what a good book! I bought it used for a class I took on health care ethics, so I did have to pay shipping even though I'm a Prime member, but I don't even mind because it was so good. Also even though it was used, the quality was great. It seemed like it was only touched once or twice. In terms of the novel itself, I never realized just how terrible and deceiving insurance companies are, and Wendell Potter really tells all! This shocking non-fiction will make anyone think twice about the world around us, which I guess is Potter's goal. I certainly find it hard to trust after reading this. It's an easy read, and one that I would definitely read again.

This book was an incredible expose of corporations, the Republicans and the HMO conglomerates in general. Their utter control over our health care and their total disregard for our health, the profits that are their only concern.
It is scarey.

More people need to pay attention to Mr. Potter. He is shining lights where few have shone before, and he is trying to warn us about how insurers will screw us whenever they can.

Quit watching Fox and read from credible sources such as this.

Good to see the curtain pulled back on corruption at an epic scale. Should be required reading for Republicans, so they don't get deceived by the insurance industry's false claims of defending capitalism.

I really enjoyed finding out more about health insurance companies within the United States, which are largely privatized, unlike the vast majority of other developed nations in the world.

This book is a must read for anyone in the healthcare industry with a conscience. Potter opens up the book of insider tricks the insurance giants are using to game the system against all of us out there trying to care for the sick. If this book doesn't inspire you to fight against these leeches on society, then nothing will.
