Reviews - What do customers think about Who Shall Live? (Health, Economics, and Social Choice) (Economic Ideas Leading to the 21st Century, 3)?
Should be required reading for all medical students Dec 10, 2000
On reading this book I kept experiencing the urge to wave it in the face of my well-meaning friends and wider acquaintance and force them to read it under duress. Quite simply, it makes perfect sense. Content-wise, I think the review under the hardback edition will fill you in more objectively than I could hope to.
What I do want to do is recommend this book to any med students struggling to cope with their seemingly-freakish interest in health economics and policy. The med school fare is almost totally devoid of any discussion of such issues, which I may consider criminal considering doctors work as part of a system and not in isolation, but is hardly surprising given the near-universal lack of interest amongst the students. Stop trying to bully your friends into arguing with you and put the energy into getting your library to buy a copy of this book. Then consider selling off your anatomy textbook to pay for your own.
