    In this explosive expose of the drug companies and how they are ripping us off, Marcia Angell, M.D., a doctor, medical journalist, and a former editor of the respected New England Journal of Medicine, reveals the many ways in which the pharmaceutical industry has moved away from its original purpose of finding and producing useful new drugs.

    "Good read, vital information"
    Overall

    I listened to this audio on a long trip to Virginia, it kept me awake and alert. I found the audio quite statisfactory, and the information clear and easy to understand. I was too engrossed by the subject to be concerned about pronunciation. It seems we all must be our own advocates considering the current state of our health system. Dr. Angell's description of how the drug industry uses powerful marketing and questionable research is indeed important information.

    Jeffery Deaver, best-selling author of The Empty Chair and The Bone Collector , now turns to the labyrinthine world of cyberspace - a world where the most powerful can lose their wealth, their minds, their lives with a hacker's touch of a button.

    We take long trips at least once per month, and look forward to our "reads". We hadn't listened to Jeffry Deaver in at least 2 years, and were happy to find another book of his on Audible. We were not disappointed. The trip went by in a flash. Well developed characters, suspenseful and not too dark, although Deaver comes right up to the edge, and several surprises along the way.
