    T.R. Reid's The healing of America: A Global Quest for Better, Cheaper, and Fairer Health Care.

    Yes, it was published in 2009 and, yes, all is not as rosy in other systems as we thought then. But there is a staggering amount of information therein (and research; the guy's a good reporter), and you'll learn a lot about the hows and whys of what passes for the American health-care . . . arrangements. Can't really call it a system, because it's not that organized.

    We shall not cease from exploration / And the end of all our exploring / Will be to arrive where we started / And know the place for the first time. --T.S. Eliot, Four Quartets / Little Gidding
