Boring That's the best way j have to describe this book. Outdated and extremely boring. O couldn't finish it, I got halfway and completely lost interest in it. Despite the interesting topic the author makes it a really heavy book, so unless you are here exactly for the info that this book gives (the biopharma landscape of the 90s) you'll be let down like me
I really enjoyed this book and though some parts of it are a bit dated, I think on the whole it is still a fairly accurate overview of a lot of the problems in the pharmaceutical industry. I am a pharmacist by profession, and I wish that everyone thought this much about their drugs and their effects. I wish I had time to sit down with patients and discuss the different issues that this book raises.
this investigative reporter goes into the world of pharmaceutical sales/research/testing after his wife has a serious adverse reaction to an antibiotic. Very well researched, great insight into the billion dollar industry.
started the book with a frightened heart but once i finished it , i can say that i am a wiser person who can choose from the jungle of counter drugs....
Everyone should read this book.
GREAT book! Written in the late 90's, but amazingly little has changed. Still relevant today. Wish I had written it!
