Two Books Rush or Hannity Aren't Reading

I recently skimmed through Third World America by Arianna Huffington and Deadly Spin: An Insurance Company Insider Speaks Out on How Corporate PR is Killing Health Care and Deceiving Americans by Wendell Potter.

Both books come from a decidedly liberal bias so neither one of the authors will be on the Tea Party's Best Seller List.

If you have to read one, I'd choose Potter's book. Potter went through a St Paul conversion moment as the head of PR at Cigna, one of this nation's major health insurers. A young woman denied coverage for a life saving operation dies. Potter reexamines his values and comes clean on the efforts of health insurance companies to stymie reform.

If you are worried about health insurance, this book won't allay your fears...
