|"Grab Paul's book
and become a player where the
delivery of health care goes. Here is an invitation to be engaged with
both health and democracy where it seems our government seems concerned
with neither. Glover is not a doctor or administrator. He has shown
that you, a citizen, can do it... he has. Do something!"
--Patch Adams, M.D., founder of Gesundheit! Institute, author of "Gesundheit! : Bringing Good Health to You, the Medical System, and Society through Physician Service, Complementary Therapies, Humor, and Joy."
"Health Democracy describes the breakthroughs we have all been hoping for. It is must reading for health care reformers in the USA and everywhere."
--Hazel Henderson, author of "Beyond Globalization" and "Ethical Markets"
"Wow! What a great effort. His ideas are very timely, and very practical common sense."
--Dr. Robert Zieve, founder of the Emerson Center for Healthy Medicine, author of "Healthy Medicine: A Guide to the Emergence of Sensible Comprehensive Care" and "Beyond the Medical Meltdown: Working Together for Sustainable Health Care."
|"No one in the world has done a
better job in
defining local solutions--
that are simple, empowering, and fun-- for seemingly intractable global
problems than Paul Glover. "Health Democracy"
offers powerful, proven, and
participatory tools for communities to begin solving their piece of the
national health-care crisis."
--Michael Shuman, author of "Going Local," "Technology for the Common Good," "The Small-Mart Revolution," and other books. He is co-director of the Institute for Policy Studies.
