Review quote

The fundamental idea behind the bookis that examining how conflincts of interest arise and are dealt with in divers professions yields insight into their underlying structure. The execution of the idea is often informative, sometimes brilliant...taken as a whole, Conflict of Interest in the Professions provides insights into the structure of conflicts, how and why they are dangerous- and when they are not- and the best ways to escape or manage them. The book deepens our understanding of conflicts of interest and clearly lays out the choices we face. * New England Journal of Medicine *show more
