Harvard Book Store Presents: Jonathan Gruber

Harvard Book Store is happy to welcome economist JONATHAN GRUBER for a discussion of his new book, Health Care Reform: What It Is, Why It’s Necessary, and How It Works.

Health Care Reform takes an original, accessible approach to educating Americans about the state of our country’s health care crisis by adopting the format of a comic book. As presented through Nathan Schrieber’s illustrations, the morass of health care reform is explained in humorous, decipherable terms.

The premise of the Affordable Care Act seemed promising: You won’t have to worry about going broke if you get sick. We will start to bring the costs of health care under control. And we will do all this while reducing the federal deficit. But from the moment President Obama signed the bill into law in 2010, a steady and mounting avalanche of misinformation about the ACA has left a growing majority of Americans confused about what it is, why it’s necessary, and how it works. If you’re one of them, buy this book. From how to tame the twin threats of rising costs and the increasing number of uninsured to why an insurance mandate is good for your health, Health Care Reform dispels false fears by arming you with facts.

“Jonathan Gruber, one of the country’s smartest health care minds, has brought the epic struggle of health reform to life. By explaining the challenges in our health care system as well as the benefits of the reform with imagination and verve, he accomplishes what many have tried and failed to do—he makes the case for health reform as an important achievement for the American people.” —Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress
