We are very excited to announce that Quentin Young's memoir is now available. "Everybody In Nobody Out: Memoirs of a Rebel Without a Pause," written in collaboration with Steve Fiffer, offers a rare glimpse inside the mind of one of the nation's most fearless advocates for a single-payer health system as we follow him on his journey through the Civil Rights Movement, the '68 Democratic Convention and his days as the head of Cook County Hospital. Dr. Young shows he's never been afraid of questioning authority - without losing his unbridled optimism - in his fight for health care equality. Visit our on-line store to purchase your copy today!
