Editorial Reviews


“Superb. . . . Likely to become required reading for anyone who wishes (or claims) to understand health care in the United States.”
(Rick Mayes Health Affairs 2011-12-01)

“Read McDonough’s book.”
(The Incidental Economist 2011-09-14)

“McDonough has done the hard work of breaking a large and historic piece of legislation down into a sober, balanced, thorough, readable, and important book. Recommended.”
(Dick Maxwell Library Journal 2011-10-15)

“Admirably clear . . . provides the best explanation available, which occupies most of his book, of the many individual components of the ten titles of the final act.”
(Jeff Madrick New York Review Of Books 2012-06-21)

“Unique. . . . Offers a perspective available to few others. . . . Accessible, highly informative, and well worth [the reader’s] time.”
(Paul Van de Water, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities World Medical & Health Policy Jrnl 2013-02-15) --This text refers to the paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

"John's firsthand account of the development, passage and enactment of the Affordable Care Act breathes life and sheds light into the history, process and substance of this landmark legislative achievement. Much like the crafting of the legislation itself, the painstaking work to produce this book will serve generations of people and policymakers, regardless of how the final chapter on this law - its implementation or repeal - is ultimately written."--Chris Jennings, Former Senior Health Care Advisor for President Bill Clinton

John McDonough is the ideal person to help us understand the significance and likely impact of health care reform. His knowledge and wisdom enables him to provide thoughtful insights about how our health care system will be improved by this legislation. Anyone interested in understanding our evolving health care system should read this book.--Ron Pollack, Executive Director, Families USA

"John McDonough provides fascinating insight into how the Affordable Care Act - really 10 pieces of legislation rolled into one - made it through the labyrinth of Congress to the president's desk. And, more importantly, he explains how reform will benefit just about everyone, and put the U.S. health system on the path to high performance with better access, improved quality, and greater efficiency for decades to come."--Karen Davis, PhD, President, The Commonwealth Fund

"John McDonough's unique perspective captures the context and progress of health reform from genesis to conclusion. Of course the odyssey of American health reform is not concluded, but this book will do a great service to understanding how we got this far.--Charles N. Kahn III, President and CEO, Federation of American Hospitals
