Description

During her two decades at The New England Journal of Medicine, Dr. Marcia Angell had a front-row seat on the growing corruption of the pharmaceutical industry. She watched drug companies stray from their original mission of discovering and manufacturing useful drugs and instead become vast marketing machines with unprecedented control over their own fortunes. She saw them gain nearly limitless influence over medical research, education, and how doctors do their jobs. She sympathized as the American public, particularly the elderly, struggled with and increasingly failed to keep up with spiraling prescription drug prices. Now, in this new book, Angell exposes the truth of what the pharmaceutical industry has become - and argues for essential, long-overdue change.
