Book Club: Natural Causes kickoff thread

This week, we’re kicking off Natural Causes by Barbara Ehrenreich!

It’s the perfect time for newcomers and folks who’d like to join the book club, and there’s still plenty of time to grab the book, so don’t hesitate to invite friends.

All you need to have read is the introduction, next week we’ll hit the first three chapters, which are about what historically gets to describe itself as medicine and what doesn’t, and how “evidence-based medicine” can become “eminence-based medicine” when the drug trials are small enough.

As for this week, though, for those who have had a chance to read the beginning of the book, what are your expectation? For anyone else, Ehrenreich is the author of works like Nickel and Dimed, have you read any of her stuff before?
