New reviews of The Healthcare Survival Guide

October 19, 2010

Two prominent book critics have given The Healthcare Survival Guide positive reviews recently. C.A. Lajos of The Librarian’s Review of Books raved about The Healthcare Survival Guide, calling it ”a guide for getting the healthcare one needs to stay healthy while not going into bankruptcy like so many others.”

“With tips on when it’s safe to cut corners, how to get freebies, and more, The Healthcare Survival Guide is for any seeking healthcare and want it cheap,” Lajos writes.

Meanwhile, Alan Caruba, charter member of the National Book Critics Circle, calls the book “one of those titles that relieves the reviewer from having to say anything more.”

”It’s filled with little-known secrets such as simply asking your doctor for a discount, keeping an eye on pharmaceutical websites for free trial offers for medications, checking out a university dental clinic and how to read a hospital bill to avoid being over-charged,” Caruba writes.
