Reviews & Accolades
“Teddie Potter and Riane Eisler’s collaboration on this text is inspiring, bringing together Eisler’s vision for a caring economy and Potter’s vision for an evolved health care system. This text is greatly needed and should serve as a template for partnership across all disciplines of health care. The old patriarchal dominator system of our current biomedical model is obviously and painfully inefficient, impractical, and ineffective. Sure, it can handle acute health care needs, but its record at handling the most pervasive problem in our world today, chronic disease, is horrendous and shameful. Further, health care’s treatment of mothers is ghastly and inexcusable, with the US owning the highest infant and maternal mortality rate of all developed nations. It is long since time for change in our American health care system, and here, Eisler and Potter show us how.” —Ginger Garner
