Chronic Condition by Jeffery Simpson won TheDonner Prize in 2012. This award is given each year for excellence and innovation in public policy writing by Canadians. I like to highlight Canadian authors especially those who have won awards for their writing so this book and its author sounded like great choices to inform readers about.
Jeffery Simpson has been The Globe and Mail’s national affairs columnist for more than 25 years. He is also an award-winning author of eight previous books including Discipline of Power. This book won a Governor General’s Award. Jeffery Simpson is an officer of the Order of Canada.
In his book Chronic Condition, Jeffery Simpson explores four options that Canadians have to end the growing health care crisis. For those who enjoy a book about reforming Canadian politics, this book sounds like it would be a great read. Although I am not generally politically inclined I am tempted to put this on my “want to read list”.
