"Dr. Kastor presents an insider's view."

"Kastor's analyses are valuable not only because of his own experiences as a former chair of a department of medicine in an academic medical center, but also because of the candor he provokes in his interviews with hundreds of physicians, administrators, and hospital and university leaders... This volume should be essential reading for leaders of academic medical centers."

"The book raises questions about the future of all academic medical centers."

"An excellent book, well informed and especially readable... The author has written a captivating story that will become a classic in the contemporary history of US health care for many years to come."

"Selling Teaching Hospitals and Practice Plans joins John Kastor's three other excellent volumes in a series that uniquely documents how the vast changes in the U.S. health care system have led to the restructuring of leading American academic medical centers. Like its predecessors, it is superbly researched, well organized, and an engaging read. It is must reading for all those involved in health care, hospital administration, and medical education."
