It "paints a picture of ObamaCare in the middle of 2012"
This book did a good job explaining the reasoning behind many of the healthcare reforms and explaining the good and bad parts about each change and/or addition and how they affect each groups of insured or uninsured people.

I realize that not all of the changes have fully been implemented yet and things are still unclear.
