<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLER • A <i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> NOTABLE BOOK • </b><i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> is Steven Brill’s acclaimed book on how the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, was written, how it is being implemented, and, most important, how it is changing—and failing to change—the rampant abuses in the healthcare industry. It’s a fly-on-the-wall account of the titanic fight to pass a 961-page law aimed at fixing America’s largest, most dysfunctional industry. It’s a penetrating chronicle of how the profiteering that Brill first identified in his trailblazing<i> Time</i> magazine cover story continues, despite Obamacare. And it is the first complete, inside account of how President Obama persevered to push through the law, but then failed to deal with the staff incompetence and turf wars that crippled its implementation. <br />  <br /> But by chance <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i> ends up being much more—because as Brill was completing this book, he had to undergo urgent open-heart surgery. Thus, this also becomes the story of how one patient who thinks he knows everything about healthcare “policy” rethinks it from a hospital gurney—and combines that insight with his brilliant reporting. The result: a surprising new vision of how we can fix American healthcare so that it stops draining the bank accounts of our families and our businesses, and the federal treasury.<br /> <b> </b><br /> <b>Praise for <i>America’s Bitter Pill</i></b><br /> <b><i> </i></b><br /> “A tour de force . . . a comprehensive and suitably furious guide to the political landscape of American healthcare . . . persuasive, shocking.”<b>—<i>The New York Times</i> </b><br />  <br /> “An energetic, picaresque, narrative explanation of much of what has happened in the last seven years of health policy . . . [Brill] has pulled off something extraordinary.”<b><i>—The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br />  <br /> “A thunderous indictment of what Brill refers to as the ‘toxicity of our profiteer-dominated healthcare system.’ ”<b>—<i>Los Angeles Times</i></b><br /> <i> </i><br /> “A sweeping and spirited new book [that] chronicles the surprisingly juicy tale of reform.”<b>—<i>The Daily Beast</i></b><br /> <b> </b><br /> “One of the most important books of our time.”<b>—Walter Isaacson</b><br />  <br /> “Superb . . . Brill has achieved the seemingly impossible—written an exciting book about the American health system.”<b>—<i>The</i> <i>New York Review of Books</i></b><br /><br /><br /><i>From the Hardcover edition.</i>

<DIV>Having trouble in your marriage? This book is for you. Tom Gardiner, a Chicago lawyer, explains how post-nuptial agreements can address marital problems effectively. Unlike counseling that often is no more than a temporary fix, this book talks about agreements that will result in long-term change. If your spouse drinks too much, for instance, you both agree in a legally binding document about the changes that need to occur—and the consequences if they don't.<BR /> <BR />There is another huge advantage to post-nups. If the behavior is not changed and divorce is triggered, the terms were set when the parties were both seeking to save the marriage—not when they're going through an acrimonious break-up. These terms are usually reasonable and fair—who gets the kids and when, a fair amount of alimony for a fair term, division of the property—all because the spouses are seeking a solution at the time.<BR /> <BR />This book covers the human frailties that can cause problems in a marriage: financial problems, drinking, drug use, cheating, blended families, in-law problems, inheritance, religious issues and so on. It is a book not just for couples, but for therapists, religious leaders and others who seek to make marriages stronger and divorces civilized and fair.<BR /></DIV>

<p>The world is a better place than it used to be. People are healthier, wealthier, and live longer. Yet the escapes from destitution by so many has left gaping inequalities between people and nations. In <i>The Great Escape</i>, Angus Deaton--one of the foremost experts on economic development and on poverty--tells the remarkable story of how, beginning 250 years ago, some parts of the world experienced sustained progress, opening up gaps and setting the stage for today's disproportionately unequal world. Deaton takes an in-depth look at the historical and ongoing patterns behind the health and wealth of nations, and addresses what needs to be done to help those left behind.</p><br /> <p>Deaton describes vast innovations and wrenching setbacks: the successes of antibiotics, pest control, vaccinations, and clean water on the one hand, and disastrous famines and the HIV/AIDS epidemic on the other. He examines the United States, a nation that has prospered but is today experiencing slower growth and increasing inequality. He also considers how economic growth in India and China has improved the lives of more than a billion people. Deaton argues that international aid has been ineffective and even harmful. He suggests alternative efforts--including reforming incentives to drug companies and lifting trade restrictions--that will allow the developing world to bring about its own Great Escape.</p><br /> <p>Demonstrating how changes in health and living standards have transformed our lives, <i>The Great Escape</i> is a powerful guide to addressing the well-being of all nations.</p>

*** Wall Street Journal and USA Today best seller! ***<br /><br />While more and more people each day become aware of the dangerous world of human trafficking, most people in the U.S. still believe this is something that happens to foreign women, men, and children--not something that happens to their own.<br /><br />In this powerful true story, Theresa L. Flores shares how her life as an All-American, blonde-haired 15-year-old teenager who could have been your neighbor was enslaved into the dangerous world of sex trafficking while living in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit. Her story peels the cover off of this horrific criminal activity and gives dedicated activists as well as casual bystanders a glimpse into the underbelly of trafficking. And it all happened while living at home wihtout her parents ever knowing about it. Involuntarily involved in a large underground criminal ring, Ms. Flores endured more as a child than most adults will ever face their entire lives.<br /><br />In this book, Ms. Flores discusses how she healed the wounds of sexual servitude and offers advice to parents and professionals on preventing this from occurring again, educating and presenting significant facts on human trafficking in modern day America.

Customer Reviews
While the shockingly high prices of prescription drugs continue to dominate the news, the strategies used by pharmaceutical companies to prevent generic competition are poorly understood, even by the lawmakers responsible for regulating them. In this groundbreaking work, Robin Feldman and Evan Frondorf illuminate the inner workings of the pharmaceutical market and show how drug companies twist health policy to achieve goals contrary to the public interest. In highly engaging prose, they offer specific examples of how generic competition has been stifled for years, with costs climbing into the billions and everyday consumers paying the price. Drug Wars is a guide to the current landscape, a roadmap for reform, and a warning of what is to come. It should be read by policymakers, academics, patients, and anyone else concerned with the soaring costs of prescription drugs.
