Uninsured in America: Life and Death in the Land of Opportunity

The fact that 45 million Americans lack health insurance has been well publicized, yet polls show that 60 percent of Americans think don’t think being uninsured has much impact on access to health care. Susan Sered and Rushika Fernandopulle may dispel that odd misperception in their absorbing and compelling book Uninsured in America: Life and Death in the Land of Opportunity. In interviews with 120 uninsured men and women, the authors tell the human stories of how untreated health problems escalate into adversities that cascade through all areas of life and across generations.
