"David Blumenthal and James Morone break new ground in our understanding of health policymaking in the White House, notably the tie between presidential policy actions and the personal medical problems that have faced each of our Presidents since Franklin D. Roosevelt. Once again, the nation faces the urgent need for health reform, and Heart of Power is essential reading for anyone who cares about improving our health care system to meet the challenges of the 21st century."--Senator Edward M. Kennedy"A fascinating story of personalities, politics, and pratfalls of the presidents in their shaping of American healthcare. Written with deep insight and fluid prose, this unique contribution from a physician and an historian is a must read for all who wish to understand how we arrived at our current system and what is needed to advance it."--Jerome Groopman, M.D., author of How Doctors Think"A revelation! This creative and compulsively readable book offers a genuinely new approach to the problem of leadership in large causes. Instructive in many ways, The Heart of Power is a moving testament to the power of the heart, in high places."--David Hackett Fischer, Brandeis University
