5.0 out of 5 stars Eye opener, 1 Feb 2006
This review is from: The Truth about the Drug Companies: How They Deceive Us and What to Do about It (Paperback)
Everyone should read this book, really. It's not only an eye opener but it's an excellent reading too.
The author has all the credentials and brings full credibility to the work, furthermore the book is written in such a way that you sometimes forget you're reading a factual report of the state of the pharmaceutical industry -- it feels more like a good Dan Brown or John Grisham novel, the difference being is all true. And scary.
I suppose the situation in America is even worse than here in Europe (at least we have the solace of drug price control over here) but to learn what goes behind the secretive doors of big pharma companies is most of the time astonishing and left me outraged after reading some passages.
Michael Moore must pick up this book and write one of those wonderful documentaries since big pharma has all the ingredients to a blockbuster, Oscar-winning Moore documentary -- think of everything that is wrong with the big corporations and their absurd profits and practices: it's all there in the big pharmaceutical companies and Marcia Angells's wonderful book.
Read it. Spread the word. And let's try and convice Mr. Moore to produce a film about it.
