Book Review: The Health Care Handbook
This review is for Elisabeth Askin and Nathan Moore’s, The Health Care Handbook: A Clear and Concise Guide to the United States Health Care System.
4/5 Pretty Good
I really like this book. It’s a great jump into the US health care system. It covers all the major players involved without going into too much detail. One aspect I really enjoyed were the glossaries and references at the end of chapters. These ranged from articles to blogs to other books. The references helped make this book a good start to general health care knowledge while serving as a jumping point to more advance resources. It’s a short read, which has it’s pros and cons. I did not like a lot of graphics, which have weird shadows and odd line thickness. The section on careers paths is a tough read straight through, but could serve as a good reference later. I also really liked the neural tone they had on health care costs. Overall, it’s a good short book that anyone starting out in health care should read.
