520    This book draws on behavioral economics to explain 
       anomalies that are intrinsic in the U.S. health care 
       system. Rather than focusing on promoting or analyzing 
       policy, author Douglas E. Hough hones in on our sometimes 
       irrational actions, their roots, and what we can do to 
       influence our behavior, nudging the health care system 
       towards better practices
