"Children of Blood and Bone"
Tomi Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her West African-inspired fantasy debut. Pre-order today
David Hogberg has produced a tour de force. He has identified Medicare's hidden victims and explained why bureaucracy, price-fixing, suppression of the marketplace and unwise regulations all combine to deny millions of patients the high quality, low cost medical care they should be receiving. I know of no other place where you can find a more comprehensive treatment of Medicare's worst problems. This is must reading for everyone in health policy. --John C. Goodman, President of the Goodman Institute
This book not only has the courage to take on the sacred cow of Medicare, but to argue convincingly that it is a deeply flawed system which actually harms both financially and medically those who most need help and care; that it allocates resources poorly and in a way that actually undermines quality; and that its decisions are driven by political clout rather than actual need, at the expense not only of patients but of doctors and smaller hospitals. Fortunately, author David Hogberg not only has a compelling critique, he has significant suggestions for serious reform. My only hope is some principled and practical politicians read this book before I enter Medicare. --Heather R. Higgins, President and CEO of Independent Women's Voice
