Summary expansion
  • The Last Well Person helps readers assume responsibility for assessing their own health and avoid medical interventions that are unnecessary or cause harm. To be well, stresses Hadler, is to have the wherewithal to cope effectively with many of life's unavoidable challenges. In lucid prose and with understated humour, he offers his book as a guide to healthier living
  • This book is a controversial skewering of how doctors and the medical industry turn healthy people into patients
