Fervently followed radio show host and author Thom Hartmann holds forth on Town Hall Seattle’s virtual stage this evening with his newest installment in his Hidden History Series, now numbering (we believe) six titles, the newest being The Hidden History of American Healthcare: Why Sickness Bankrupts You and Makes Others Insanely Rich (Berrett-Koehler).
“This book is a must-read to understand the history of America’s healthcare up to the present-day COVID pandemic. Hartmann vividly exposes the forces opposing universal health care, specifically insurance companies and the AMA, as well as overt racism and deep fears of socialism.” —Justin A. Frank, MD.
“Thom Hartmann’s latest book is a must-read for everyone who wants the United States to join the rest of the world and provide healthcare as a human right through the enactment of Medicare for All.” —Nancy J. Altman.
