The Healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care by T.R. Reid

I cannot recommend this book enough. The author travels the globe to learn about how other countries/cultures would remedy an injury that he has. In doing so, he adds a compelling personalized dimension to our country's struggle with health care reform and concludes that the notion of "socialized medicine" is indeed a myth. Written before the health care reform bill passed, this book takes on a whole new meaning in light of the changes that we are about to experience in health care.
