    This Book is a Game-Changer

    Truly, one of the best, most relevant books I have read in a long time. As someone who has been affected negatively by pharmaceuticals and allopathic medicine, I was thrilled to find such a comprehensive resource with evidence of what I have long just heard and suspected: the pharmaceutical industry has its tentacles wrapped around our governmental bodies, medical schools and journals, and physicians. They have infiltrated so completely and yet the American people seem largely complacent. I strongly believe that every person in America should read this book, and prior to choosing any doctors to care for any member of your family, you should insist that they read this book and "report" back to you first. If they want to prescribe you a prescription medication, have them read it again and explain how they are CERTAIN you indeed NEED the drug in question.

    Expose of the Pharmaceutical Industry

    If you are involved in healthcare, either as a practitioner or consumer, you must read this book. It is a well researched, interesting, and frightening look at the power of the drug companies. It reveals their marketing techniques and business tactics. Ms. Petersen explains how these companies are reaching their primary goal of making money, and why this conflicts with the goals of healthcare. It is focused on the problems of the industry, so some people may find it biased. But I think we get so much pro-pharmaceutical information, we need to be educated on the problems. This book is a worthy attempt to correct that situation.
    The only reason I give this book 4 stars is because it may be too medically-oriented for some people. But if you have any interest or basic knowledge of medicine, it should be an easy read. Ms. Petersen does make the information relevant to just about anyone.
