Authors Santerre and Neun take a fresh contemporary approach to health economics. The writing style is lively and inviting to students that are intimidated by the term "economics." The authors use several real-world applications to make the economic theory more approachable to students. The central theme of Health Economics, 3e relates to the costs and benefits associated with various health care choices. Using this theme, the book covers the many changes that have taken place in the field of health care in both the public and private sectors.

He also has published articles on executive compensation and corporate control in such journals as the Quarterly Journal of Business, Economics and Managerial Decision Economics, and The Review of Economics and Statistics.

In my opinion it is one of, if not the, best health economics textbooks on the market. In fact, it is the only textbook I have been willing to use since I began teaching the subject a few years ago.
This text would be very interesting to my students, since most come from professional schools and are more interested in economic applications rather than economic methodology.
