Why Our Health Matters : A Vision of Medicine That Can Transform Our Future. It addresses the author's style of treatment called Integrative Medicine (IM) which is a blend of conventional and whole body treatment. What I really enjoyed about this book was the conversational tone and approachable style - despite the author's Harvard education and decades of medical practice, he has still made the subject matter easy to understand and engaging.

It's a great album, lot of info on our Health Care System, which has taken out the word "Care". Must listen if you want to find out about our medical future

Don't miss this important book. Weil has the audacity to talk about the most important aspects of health care reform. Without making the changes he suggests there can be no reform of our health care system. We all owe him a debt of gratitude.

With the whole nation waiting for the outcome of the congress' new health insurance plan, this book is a must in understanding the problem. You'll learn where the money goes(it's shocking)and you can determine if this is a fix for health insurance or more retoric without any real attempt to repair the problem. You might not agree with everything Dr. Weil says but he puts forth ideas for you to consider. Points that cannot be overlooked.

A wonderful vision of health care, not only for U.S, but for the rest of the world. Dr. Weil is at his best as before. I hope that the people, health care professionals and governments will listen to this radical voice and make positive changes to fix the system. Here is a chance for America to be a true leader to the world, bringing in a novel system of health care, covering everybody, bringing in the best of conventional, complementary and other systems of medicine with rationale,common sense and compassion.

"Why Health Matters" is a clear history of our present day health debate. Dr. Weil has clearly described the real debate we should be having discussing disease prevention & health promotion including taking drug advertisements OFF television.

This wise man has long recommended medicine that works & cost saving policies that would do well being known by the American people & demanded by our Congressional representatives.

This book shows the vision we all want: more caring doctors, doctors who have the time to know their patients, costs that won't bankrupt Americans, and optimum health we all deserve.

Detailed analysis of health policy and the flawed health system in the first part of this lecture is well done but may be over the heads of some average listeners. Dr. Weil's reading is competent and articulate, but tends to be a bit dry and always sounds like he is reading (unlike professional narrators, such as Scott Brick who reads Pollan's material, who never sound like they're reading). Otherwise, an excellent and thought-provoking book. The seller was quick and I had no problems with delivery.
Golden Lama
Good book written by one of the few medical celebrities I trust. Most are only in it for the money. Dr. Weil's profits go to charity.
I liked the book a lot. But some of my friends with whom I shared it were put off by its title, saying that our health matters is something obvious, so what's new the author is stating?! Wonder if the author would consider a more relevant title for the book.
