Críticas:

"A superb guide to the maze of issues in American health care and health care reform . . . "America's Bitter Pill" is an energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy. It is full of insights, contradictions, apologias, flashes of anger, tidbits of history, extended stories of awe, compassion, some glibness and moments of brilliance. Above all, it includes fascinating reporting on how crucial decisions were made involving the drafting and implementation of the Affordable Care Act. . . . It reminded me of a Bruegel painting. . . . [Steven Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary--a thriller about market structure, government organization and billing practices."--"The New York Times Book Review"
"There is much to applaud about "America's Bitter Pill." I suspect it will help shape our judgment of the Affordable Care Act and of the systemic failures that the legislation sought to address for a long time. It is, moreover, a damning account of the parasitic, corrupting interests slowly degrading the legislative process and of the feckless state of American bureaucracy. For its insights into our nation's fiscal, psychological and corporeal health--and for our own long-term social well-being--it is a book that deserves to be read and discussed widely by anyone interested in the politics and policy of healthcare."--"Los Angeles Times"
"[An] ambitious new history of the Affordable Care Act."--Malcolm Gladwell, "The New Yorker"
"Steven Brill's new book about the process of passing the Affordable Care Act is so meticulously reported, I found myself surprised by many details of a process I myself was deeply involved in. . . . Brill has written an outstanding book about the administration's efforts to pass Obamacare. Now it is up to the administration to prove him wrong about what the legislation does to the trajectory of health-care costs."--Peter R. Orszag, "Bloomberg View"
" "
"In a sweeping and spirited new book, "America's Bitter Pill, "journalist Steven Brill chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform. Brill, whose "Time" cover story last spring about costs of care caused quite a stir, has focused an unsparing eye on a countless number of politicians, bureaucrats, lobbyists, activists, and industry types. The result is an exacting and always readable examination of how a good idea turned sour, how the public got screwed, and who is to blame. . . . [Brill's] book brims with unconventional insight delivered in prose completely uninfected by the worn out tropes and tired lingo of the Sunday shows. . . . Compelling and revealing."--"The Daily Beast"
" "
"Brill's book performs an admirable job of getting behind the scenes. . . . [A] state-of-the-nation account of the broken U.S. healthcare system and Obama's partially successful attempt to heal it."--"The National"
"A landmark study, filled with brilliant reporting and insights, that shows how government really works--or fails to work."--Bob Woodward
""America's Bitter Pill" is deeply impressive, an important diagnosis of what America needs to know if we're ever to develop a healthcare system that is fair, efficient, and effective."--Tom Brokaw
"This is one of the most important books of our time. Through revealing personal stories, dogged political reporting, and clear analysis, it makes the battle over Obama's healthcare plan come alive and shows why it matters. It should be required reading for anyone who cares about our healthcare system."--Walter Isaacson
"In "America's Bitter Pill, " Steven Brill brilliantly ties together not only the saga of Obamacare, but also the larger story of our dysfunctional healthcare system and its disastrous impact on both businesses and ordinary Americans. In a gripping narrative, his thorough reporting is made all the more powerful by his own scary experience looking up from a gurney."--Arianna Huffington

Reseña del editor:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER A NEW YORK TIMES NOTABLE BOOK America s Bitter Pill is Steven Brill s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing and failing to change the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America s largest, most dysfunctional industry. It s a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing Time magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation.
But by chance America s Bitter Pill ends up being much more because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare policy rethinks it from a hospital gurney and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.
