Health care in the United States can be complicated, and the idea of rebuilding the system can be daunting. In this book, Day, owner of the business Day Healthcare Strategies, strives to decipher the workings of the current system and the history of American health care, and explore how citizens can advocate for change. The occasionally dense text discusses how health coverage does or doesn’t work from person to person, why women are more affected by system inequalities, and the ways in which U.S. practices differ from other developed countries. The subtitle implies a focus on the importance of women in the fight for universal health care, but in reality, the work is much more concentrated on the history of the health care reform movement and how it can advance; that women are on the front lines is more of a footnote.
VERDICT Day clearly provides a road map for future advocacy in health-care reform, appealing to readers interested in helping to pave a path forward.
