    A very simple, dry overview of the US healthcare system (Pre 2017). In fairness, this is a condensed version, but it is very, very condensed. Could serve as a handy glossary of terminology.

    I love this textbook. It is my second time taking a class that uses it and I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was current. Things have changed since I first used this book, but they do a great job keeping up with today's healthcare system
