Critical Condition

Donald L. Barlett

Exposing the most controversial, little-known practices of Americas most flawed system, Time magazines Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative team pulls back the curtain on the health care industry to explain exactly how things grew so out of control.

They profile patients and doctors trapped by the system and offer startling personal stories that illuminate whats gone wrong. Doctors tell of being second-guessed and undermined by health care insurers
