The Health Gap

by Michael Marmot

Buy from Amazon

Written from a public health and health economics point of view, this raised an interesting perspective of the effects of not only absolute but relative deprivation on health outcomes, something I think we all have a vague idea of but I was surprised by the degree of gradient seen in the different populations discussed and the author's take on improving population health.

It has definitely made me more aware of the issues affecting my patient population and potential differences I can expect on moving to a city practice from my current relatively rural setting.
