Overview

Author and Stanford doctor Walter Bortz is recognized as perhaps our foremost authority on healthy aging as well as one of our most fervent and credible advocates of radical change in American health care. His new book is "Occupy Medicine: A Call For A Revolution To Save American Healthcare" and it is worth your reading time.

Occupy Medicine is a layman's guide through the labyrinth of our present medical catastrophe. Dr. Walter Bortz, in this compact and powerful treatise, shows how American medicine has morphed into a bureaucratic industrial complex whose defining core is the perpetuation of sickness. Calling for a new paradigm he describes the Commonhealth as "a system in which every segment of society is committed to the assurance of our personal and collective potential", which he identifies as our most important national resource. He shows in compelling terms how we can achieve that. With an urgent plea for each of us to take back ownership of our personal health, Dr. Bortz calls on all of us to step up to the primary responsibility for our own health -- and shows just how to do it.
