Jeanne Lenzer is an award-winning independent medical investigative journalist and author whose hard-hitting investigations have appeared in medical journals and lay outlets including The BMJ, the Journal of Family Practice, the New York Times, Washington Post, Smithsonian Magazine, the Atlantic, Washington Monthly, Newsweek Japan, Mother Jones, and Discover. She is currently at work on a book about medical illusions. Her first book, The Danger Within Us, won critical acclaim from leading physicians and authors: “Lenzer’s gripping and carefully researched book addresses why America needs a New Deal in health care. This book enlightens, enrages, and will surely help advance that cause.” —Bernard Lown, cardiologist, Emeritus Professor, Harvard School of Public Health and Nobel Peace Prize recipient “One of the best books in medicine I have read. A splendid, savage story about the failings of modern device regulation that reads like a mystery, not a work of medical non-fiction: It turns out to be both.” — Vinay Prasad, Assistant Professor of Medicine, Oregon Health and Science University, and author of Ending Medical Reversal "Jeanne Lenzer's incisive investigation of one man's quest for medical justice - and the regulatory failures behind it - is a must-read for anyone wanting to understand the risks faced by all of us during routine procedures. And it should be, for all of us, a call to action." — Deborah Blum, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of The Poisoner's Handbook “Jeanne Lenzer has pulled off a brilliant literary hat trick; a page-turning tale of one patient’s odyssey, combined with hard-hitting investigative reporting and a compelling call to arms to fix America’s broken health care system. Before you get anything implanted in your body, read this book.” — Shannon Brownlee, author of Overtreated “The indefatigable investigative reporter Jeanne Lenzer tells the story of how millions of Americans are implanted with medical devices with almost no proof that they are safe.” — Marcia Angell, former editor-in-chief, the New England Journal of Medicine, and author of The Truth About the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do About It.
