I picked up this book after reading the Health Care Handbook and found that this has some very solid information, and left me feeling that I have a working knowledge of the US health care system. The reason for 4 stars is that the online materials accompanying this book are very lazy and not helpful. The comprehension quizzes are 10 questions of arbitrary importance, and the discussion questions are just open ended questions that don''t have responses or answers anywhere to be found. I think if the authors supplemented this book with more quizzes and discussion questions it would provide a much better experience.

Good book
Reviewed in the United States on July 18, 2018
The book is up to date and quite useful for a graduate level class I am taking. The writing style is approachable but often quite dry.
There are often several pages of quite busy graphs or tables but not enough synthesis or discussion of all of that data.

In good condition, but missing pages in the middle of the book. Super weird! I didn''t go through the whole thing to see if it was missing other pages than the ones in the picture. It also took me a while to notice because I didn''t think I had to check books to make sure they were complete, so I only saw this after weeks of reading other chapters of the book.

I had problems with repeated information and readability. The chapters didn''t feel very intuitive to me and didn''t really help improve my understanding of healthcare in America. This was a required textbook in our course.
