JAMA Book Review of Frederick Barken's Out of Practice
Last year, our series at Cornell University Press — The Culture and Politics of Health Care Work — published Frederick Barken’s excellent book about the frustrations of primary care medicine in America. JAMA agrees with us about the value of this new book. The reviewer highlights all the right things even though he sees the glass as a bit fuller than Barken does. This is a book well worth reading, particularly in light of President Obama’s reelection and thus the coming implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
