NOTE TO READERS: When this project lost substantial funding at the end of 2018, I lost the ability to continue publishing criteria-driven news story reviews and PR news release reviews - once the bread-and-butter of the site going back to 2006. The 3,200 archived reviews, while still educational, are getting old and difficult for me to technically maintain on the back end of the website. So I am announcing that I plan to remove these reviews from the site by April 1, 2021. The blog and the toolkit - two of the most popular features on the site - will remain. If you wish to peruse the reviews before they disappear, please do so by the end of March 2021. After that date you may still be able to access them via the Internet Archive Wayback Machine -

Yes, we also review books on health care

Posted By


One area of health care writing that seems to have flourished in recent years is in the publication of books on health care, health policy, evidence-based medicine, consumer health, disease-mongering and related topics.

On this blog, we frequently write little reviews of such books. Or we post reviews that others have written.  The following is a list of links to just some that we’ve published somewhat recently.

We welcome your comments and recommendations for health care books you’ve liked.  (Note:  this is not a place for authors to self-promote their own books.)

A great book appropriate for the health care discussions of today: Racism in Health care by Dr. Marie E. Seneque, RN, PhD. I found it facinating and very provocative.
