Steven Brill's 36-page cover article for Time magazine exposes hospital billing practices and their contribution to spiraling health care costs, revealing a health care marketplace that places profits over lives.

The piece broke online sales records on Time.com. It generated conversations in hospitals, clinics, classrooms, legislators' offices and living rooms. The Daily Show's Jon Stewart, a single payer supporter, said "this should be a Silent Spring moment for health care," comparing the article to Rachel Carson's book, which was widely credited for galvanizing the contemporary environmental movement.
