The saga of big pharma gives new meaning to the term "slippery slope"...solid, thorough, and told with vigor.
If a knowledgeable public is the key, this straightforward, highly readable book is a step in the right direction.
What Fast Food Nation did for the way Americans eat, Greg Critser does fo rth way we medicate ourselves.
Provocative... he does a lucid job conveying the dramatic ways in which the development and marketing of pharmaceuticals have changed over the last two decades and the equally dramatic and often disturbing consequences of this phenomenon.
The New York Times
"Critser has a knack for turning the words of the pharmaceutical industry...against it, packing every page with enough "Oh, wow!" information to jade even the most hardened cynic." Booklist, ALA, Starred Review
Reader's Prize 2005: "While if may have been about time someone levied some harsh criticism against the pharmaceutical industry, Critser goes above and beyond the call of duty." Elle
