Product description


We revolt because our health -- our very lives -- matter. Why We Revolt does not serve as a blueprint but as an inspiration for patients and clinicians who are ready to pry open the idea of "healthcare" and make it about actual health and care. This book is a necessary catalyst for conversations that will revolutionize patient care.

- Kerri Sparling, diabetes patient advocate and creator of

This profoundly humanistic examination of what has gone wrong in medicine has the diagnosis just right. This book is for everyone who will ever be a patient, for every health professional, and for every administrator and policy-maker.

- Gordon Guyatt, physician and researcher, father of evidence-based medicine

I went into medicine to interact with real, unique, emotive humans. Why We Revolt brings healthcare back to this primary love of and care for patients.

- Sara Segner, medical student

Montori begins with a gut punch that stays with you throughout this powerful, sobering, eye-opening book. After expertly diagnosing the roots of "industrial healthcare" problems, he passionately plots a patient revolution. Policy makers, clinicians, patients, and journalists should set aside the very little time needed to absorb this gem and learn from its lessons.

- Gary Schwitzer, journalist and publisher of
