This was an assigned textbook to my Masters in Health Administration class as an introduction to health care systems. I felt that this book was very logical and had a "story-telling" nature in the delivery of information. This is a great overall view to health care, as well as provides great introductions to many aspects of health care. As others have mentioned, it has a slightly pessimistic outlook to the health care "system" in that the book does not hesitate to point out the lack of a true system.

Overall, for the vastness of introductory information covered, this book does the job,
Delivery was fast and it was a new book. However the back cover and several of the back pages had been cut with what appears to be a razor or box cutter.
I receive the book before the expected day. Was everything perfect. I would like to buy another time with you.
