A deeply affecting work that is at once rigorous and person, Well examines the subtle and not-so-subtle factors that determine who gets to be healthy in America.
Sandro Galea argues that the country's failing health is a product of the society and culture Americans have built for ourselves not just in lifestyle, but in the separations entrenched across the spectrum of American experience.
