Author Exposure

I thought I knew what to expect from Cover Me by Sonya Huber, but I was so wrong. This book is much more than a diatribe about medical coverage in the United States. This is a personal and blatantly honest look through Huber’s own experiences, which she hopes will prompt us to ask the question: “Can I tell my life story through the lens of my healthcare card?” Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs weaves throughout this book like a threaded roadmap forcing the reader to realize that attaining even our most basic needs is often in conflict with or defined by our healthcare coverage. Suddenly the message of this book becomes very personal and very clear.
