Physicians, policy makers, the public, and other stakeholders undoubtedly have been tuned in to the current debate regarding health care reform in the United States. Although many will agree that some kind of health care reform is needed to decrease costs and improve access to care, the details on how this might best be accomplished may not be clear to most. Robert Levine's book is a timely addition to the ongoing debate, and, even though not everyone will agree with his proposed fix, he systematically covers the issues at hand and offers possible solutions.
