Touted as “everything you need to understand how the US health care system works—and your role in it,” Understanding Health Policy is essentially a text, although eminently readable. Concepts are highlighted with vignettes that any current health care provider will recognize. The final chapter provides questions for continued thought and discussion. Anyone wanting to gain insight into the forces shaping health policy and the future of health care will appreciate this book.
