From the Publisher"Only Jerry Avorn, with his insider's penetrating vision, could show us the triumphs and travesties, promises and perils of today's prescription drugs. Refreshingly, he not only diagnoses the ills of our current system but proposes novel remedies that we are well advised to heed."
—Jerome Groopman, M.D.
“In Powerful Medicines, Dr. Avorn brilliantly demonstrates the corrosive effects of commercial influence over medical research, education, and clinical care. This impressive book demonstrates the adverse effects such privatization can have on the health care system and ultimately on patients.”
— Bernard Lown, M.D., Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize
