I read the book during Christmas break. It is a very interesting book. It reveals the connections of pharmaceutical companies to doctors and the government. One of its main argument is the conflict of interests that arises from such connection. When you're a physician and a writer for a medical journal and you are in any way financially connected to pharmaceutical companies, what you do and what you write about is definitely influenced by such connections. The author also talks about how as healthcare consumers are becoming "informed", primary care doctors are oftentimes forced to write prescriptions by their patients even though they know such treatment plan is not exactly the best option for their patients. The book was very informative and I really enjoyed reading it.
