In this book, Jane Philpott, a medical doctor and former federal minister of health, lays out a vision for a healthier country. She talks about health from multiple perspectives: clinical, spiritual, social and political, arguing that we must address all four aspects to achieve best results. Her approach is informed by indigenous perspectives gained from her work indigenous people in Canada, and also the decade she spent working in Africa. Her approach is comprehensive and common sense.

The book is also, to a lesser degree, the story of Dr. Philpott's careers in medicine and politics. She shares lessons learned and how they have helped shaped her ideas. She also tells the stories of people struggling to access the health care system, and of the amazing work of former health minister, Monique Begin.

A very interesting and insightful read. I worry, though, that her holistic approach may prevent or delay action on some of the most urgent aspects of health care which is badly needed in Canada.
