About the Author
Dr. Michael Rosenblum, chosen by his fellow physicians in several published surveys as one of the best doctors in the San Francisco Bay Area, shut down his internal medicine practice due to an avalanche of regulatory pressures. He is now a health consultant, lecturer, writer, and guitar-picker, and enjoys working in his hillside garden.

It's truly shocking that the U.S. -- with the highest per capita medical expenditures in the world -- falls substantially below a number of other countries in life expectancy. For the unemployed, the poor AND many in the middle class, the widespread lack of medical services and insurance is an embarrassment and a scandal. As Dr. Rosenblum demonstrates, the result creates intense personal suffering and greatly increases the real cost to taxpayers because uninsured individuals end up in emergency rooms or extended hospital stays due to lack of early treatment. On a personal level, even though I am a well-employed and insured professional, I find it increasingly difficult to obtain necessary care as frustrated doctors retire early or restrict whom they treat.
Dr. Rosenblum's text suggests way to help cure our horrendous medical mess on a national and community level and points out what I need to do to care for myself and my family in the meantime. I believe every concerned citizen, activist and concerned user of medical care will benefit from this book.
