Sven R. Larson gives a front-row view of a reality very different from what your average Liberal American believes to be true about Swedish health care, and for that matter, what your average Swede, who's never suffered anything more serious than a common cold, and never had to be in contact with the health care monopoly in the country, believes to be true.
Larson not only chronicles, with tales of individual despair and pain, the reality of socialized medicine, but also explains why the Swedish system from the beginning had its own demise built into it. It's a devastating look at why the Welfare State cannot work, and why Americans should be afraid -- very afraid -- of accepting any health care system patterned on the Swedish model.
