NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Americaa€™s Bitter Pill is Steven Brilla€™s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changinga€”and failing to changea€”the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. Ita€™s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing Americaa€™s largest, most dysfunctional industry. Ita€™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 Americaa€™s Bitter Pill ends up being much morea€”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 a€œpolicya€ rethinks it from a hospital gurneya€”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. Praise for Americaa€™s Bitter Pill a€œA tour de force . . . a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare . . . persuasive, shocking.a€a€”The New York Times a€œAn energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . . [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.a€a€”The New York Times Book Review a€œA thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the a€˜toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.a€™ a€a€”Los Angeles Times a€œA sweeping and spirited new book [that] chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform.a€a€”The Daily Beast a€œOne of the most important books of our time.a€a€”Walter Isaacson a€œSuperb . . . Brill has achieved the seemingly impossiblea€”written an exciting book about the American health system.a€a€”The New York Review of Books From the Hardcover edition.But by chance Americaa€™s Bitter Pill ends up being much morea€”because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery.
