"Ever since the pandemic began, and well before that, Andy Slavitt has been an indispensable voice of reason and urgency when it comes to America's health. This book comes at a crucial moment as he explains, in accessible and engaging terms, how we got here and what must happen next." --Pete Buttigieg, Former Presidential Candidate and Mayor of South Bend, Indiana

One of the most well-connected figures in medicine and health policy... He's become a go-to account for the daily inside scoop on where the U.S. is progressing and where it's failing. [His Twitter thread] is also a good source of a dose of humanity -- including his viral thread inviting people to share a photo and short caption that best summarizes their life in the pandemic. It will make you laugh and cry. --Elemental

"He's not swaggery; he doesn't come across as particularly commanding. But then leadership isn't always blustery or elected. Slavitt is a policy wonk turned cage rattler, and in this time of pandemic, he's emerged on Twitter and TV as one of the more straightforward, consistent sources of information, a health care administrator with a talent for getting senators and CEOs to call him back." --The Chicago Tribune

"As CMS administrator, he was able to work across the aisle, though quietly, more than some predecessors. His pragmatic problem-solving (he dislikes the word "technocrat") approach helped him build good ties with much of the health care industry and many governors, including those in red and purple states." --Politico

"During his tenure at CMS, he has repeatedly proven to be an effective problem solver that engages stakeholders to craft consensus-based solutions." --American Medical Association

"He's as knowledgeable about health care as anyone I've met. He's one of the few people that can really integrate all of the aspects." --Bill George, former Medtronic CEO

"With decades of experience delivering health care services to millions of Americans, Andy has developed a track record as an effective and innovative leader who gets results. As acting administrator at CMS, Andy has played a crucial role in leading efforts to combat health care fraud, reform health care delivery, and improve health outcomes." --Amy Klobuchar

"Andy pairs a deep understanding of U.S. health care with a unique ability to execute honed over years as a private-sector leader. And as the bipartisan make up of United States of Care demonstrates, Andy's expertise is recognized by Republicans and Democrats.'' --Denis McDonough, Former White House Chief of Staff
