The writers go through great lengths describing the history of the bill, it's heated debate which rings to this day in some circles, and it's more positive outcomes.
However the book is far less acknowledging of the opposing viewpoints of it's critics, especially of the individual mandate. Asserting instead the (erroneous) assumption that the mandate is legal under the Interstate Commerce Clause of the Constitution.
In short, if you want to know only the "good" parts of the bill, this book is for you. If you want to know the real nitty-gritty underbelly of this law that has it's opponents in a furor, you'll find no answers here.
