Amanda Bennett, a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and editor at Bloomberg and co chair of the Pulitzer Prize board, delivers The Cost of Hope on June 5. This memoir of her courtship and marriage asks the ultimate question, how much would you spend to extend the life of a loved one for just a possibly short amount of time. There is no answer to this question but when Bennett's husband develops terminal kidney cancer, they are on the path of discovery. After his passing, Bennett takes a look at the medical effort that was expended on his behalf and the amount of money that it cost. In the end, she believes she would not have changed anything but this does aid in our discovery of how medical costs are set.
