Product Details



“[E]veryone who may have elders to care for, and/or may end up as an elder in need of care themselves—which is to say, everyone—should read this book, and press our governments to heed Picard’s warnings and wise advice.” —Montreal Review of Books

Neglected No More is a powerful, well-researched, eloquently written book that dives deep into why and how Canada fails its elders.” —Forbes

“[A] compelling case for transforming how society cares for older people.” —The Lancet

“Picard . . . is odds-on Canada’s premier health-care journalist. His columns in the Globe and Mail are intelligent, incisive and frequently revelatory. So is this book.” —Winnipeg Free Press

Neglected No More should be an essential part of the national debate we urgently need to be having right now, whether or not we agree with all of its conclusions.” —Literary Review of Canada

“All [of Picard’s] suggestions make sense. We should all hope and demand that he’ll be heeded. . . . Highly recommended.” —Vancouver Sun

Praise for Matters of Life and Death: Public Health Issues in Canada:

“Over the past 30 years, André Picard has become the most prominent Canadian commentator on the intersection between medicine and social values. His new book, Matters of Life and Death, a selection of some of his most powerful columns written for The Globe and Mail, further establishes his unique voice in discussions about Canadian health-care policy. . . . The extent of Picard’s influence has accrued because he stands outside medicine and the academy—he has no formal training in health care. This allows him a skepticism and clear-sightedness that has made him an indispensable medical writer.” —The Globe and Mail

“If ill-informed health policy debates are part of the problem, this new book from journalist André Picard is an important part of the solution. Matters of Life and Death distills Picard’s 30 years of experience covering the health policy beat into a bracing dose of fact and analysis. And his elegant voice as a prose stylist is the spoonful of sugar that makes even his more alarming and discouraging passages go down smoothly. . . . This is a remarkable and useful book, rich with anecdotes, facts and statistics and often providing thoughtful suggestions for the big-picture reforms that the author believes would improve Canadian health service.” —Vancouver Sun

“We all need to read Matters of Life and Death, reflect on it, generate conversations, and take action for change. Without such conversations and changes, our health system is not sustainable. Thank you, André Picard, for giving us your columns to start these conversations.” —Canadian Journal of Physician Leadership
