The Foreward Clarion Review commended this author for the complete, comprehensive information in e-Patients Live Longer.
“The book’s eleven chapters cover everything from understanding how preparing for a doctor’s visit has changed over the years and what your legal rights are as self-advocating patients. The concepts in each chapter are introduced and reinforced with real-life stories that are appropriately suited to each topic. These illustrative stories make the concepts memorable and empowering.”
Kirkus Indie Review June 2014 stated: “The 2014 update to the original 2011 edition of this book reflects changes to the Affordable Care Act and underscores the breakneck pace of change in both healthcare and technology. Finn presents an enormous amount of complex material in short, orderly chapters with plenty of subheadings, bulleted lists, bold type and real-life examples and documented sources. A comprehensive accurate and useful healthcare guide chock full of statistics, surveys, and anecdotal stories.”
