"I picked up and set down a lot of books this weekend. Novels, memoirs, exposes, fiction favorites. None of them stuck.
So why, oh why, did the most interesting book I started have to be Our Daily Meds: How the Pharmaceutical Companies Transformed Themselves Into Slick Marketing Machines and Hooked the Nation on Prescription Drugs, by Melody Petersen?
So, no, I didn’t need another depressing book. I’m reading it anyway. This is a popular publishing area right now–with books like Shannon Brownlee’s Overtreated and Marcia Angell’s The Truth about the Drug Companies heading up the competition–but this is one of the best books (along with Peter Rost’s The Whistleblower) on the subject I’ve seen."
