At #15 on Amazon and rising is The Healing of America, a book that examines how other countries have created universal health care. Several large libraries are showing heavy holds on light ordering (as high as 107 on 6 copies).

Washington Post correspondent T. R. Reid took a personal approach to his subject; he traveled around the world, seeking a cure for his stiff shoulder.

The book has been featured in the media, including NPR’s Fresh Air (TR Reid: Looking Overseas For ‘Healing Of America’), an interview with Diane Sawyer on Good Morning America, as well as a review in the San Francisco Chronicle.
