Powerfully written, even handed to boot! A "must read" if....
if you or anyone in your life has or currently struggles with the disease of addiction or is being prescribed pain medication for any reason. Where there is need for the powerful OxyContin, it also kills. Know as "hilly billy" heroin, this is the well researched and written story of greed and ignorance, benign neglect on the part of government officials who were understaffed and lacking in power. Tragically it is the story of how prescription medication now kills more people in the US than "street drugs." All this and the manufacturer makes billions whether sold legally or... in many cases, where pill mills thrive.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Fascinating book, read it twice
It's well-researched and presents the human side of addiction. Describes the deceit of the company that made the drug (OxyContin) that fueled America's opioid addiction epidemic. Ahead of its time, since it was published in 2003 and the company was found guilty in 2006 of misbranding and deceitful marketing practices.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
