Peter Rost drops a bomb on the pharmaceutical industry in this fast-paced expose. I wish I had kept as detailed notes and records of my pharma career - my own book would have been a lot better. Dr. Rost doesn't just crack open the door to the drug industry; he kicks the damn thing down like The Terminator.
The author, however, doesn't limit his criticism to only the drug companies; he is amazingly candid with his own mistakes, a refreshing and welcome addition that serves to increase his credibility. Readers will appreciate Rost's keen eye, as well as his ability to explain potentially tedious material in an interesting way.
It's hard to believe post-Enron that companies can still be dumb enough to ignore the concerns of well-intentioned employees, concerns that have huge moral, legal and financial implications. This book will be eye opening for the uninitiated and sobering for industry veterans. For all, it should be required reading before your next trip to the doctor's office!
