This book is a detailed look at the extent that the pharmaceutical industry has inserted itself into daily life.
Many books on this subject focus on the numbers, but this big work takes us to the ground floor of the problem. Further than advertising, we see the direct influence and even participation in American life, particularly in schools and anything having to do with children.
I highly recommend this book in general. It would be good for any lay person that doesn't know about the harm or pervasiveness of pharmaceutical drugs, and it would be good for people who already understand the numbers and believe the harm, because the perspective in this book is highly valuable either way.
