Críticas

For twelve years, Mike Bloomberg was Mayor of New York City, and the two Toms (Frieden and Farley) ran the health department. The brash, fearless trio took on Big Tobacco and salt- and sugar-pushers to make New York the healthiest city in America, with a life expectancy three years longer than the nation s. This great book tells you how they did it. --Laurie Garrett, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and author of I Heard The Sirens Scream: How Americans Responded to the 9/11 and Anthrax Attacks"

In recent years, New York City adopted a series of bold initiatives to reduce smoking, to combat childhood obesity, and otherwise to promote public health. Tom Farley was there, and he tells the gripping inside story. Think that a public heath department can't save lives? Think again!--Cass R. Sunstein, Robert Walmsley University Professor, Harvard University, and coauthor of Nudge

There is a reason why people in New York City live longer than average Americans, and this book tells you why. Tom Farley has written a fast-paced chronicle of those exciting years and recounts how a mayor who didn't have to worry about raising funds for his campaigns told his health commissioners to think big and save lives.--Richard Besser, MD, chief health and medical editor, ABC News

As mayor of NYC, Michael Bloomberg showed the world that an enlightened leader can tremendously improve the health and well-being of his constituents. In this riveting book, Dr. Farley uses his experiences as a member of Bloomberg's public health team to describe the challenges and opposition faced at every step.--Walter Willett, MD, DrPH, chair, Department of Nutrition, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Reseña del editor

In 2002, a dynamic doctor named Thomas Frieden became health commissioner of New York City. With support from the new mayor, billionaire Michael Bloomberg, Frieden and his health department team prohibited smoking in bars, outlawed trans fats in restaurants, and attempted to cap the size of sodas, among other groundbreaking actions. The initiatives drew heated criticism, but they worked: by 2011, 450,000 people had quit smoking, childhood obesity rates were falling, and life expectancy was growing.Saving Gotham is the behind-the-scenes story of the most controversial—and successful—public health initiative of our time. Thomas A. Farley, MD, who succeeded Frieden as health commissioner, introduces a team of doctors who accepted the challenge of public health: to care for each of New York City’s eight million inhabitants as their own patients. The biggest threats they faced were not cholera or chemical toxins or lack of medical care but instead habits like smoking and unhealthy eating. As these doctors pressed to solve these problems, they found themselves battling those who encouraged those habits, and they reshaped their own agency for a different sort of fight.Farley shows what happens when science-driven doctors are given the political cover to make society-wide changes to protect people from today’s health risks—and how industries exploit legislatures, the courts, the media, and public opinion to undermine them. With Washington caught in partisan paralysis and New York City’s ideas spreading around the world, Saving Gotham demonstrates how government—local government—can protect its citizens and transform health for everyone.
