Praise

“Tanner is a persistent and experienced researcher…and the information he gleans paints an alarming picture…A thorough report, carefully researched and well-documented, aimed at both general readers and policymakers.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Patient data presents both promise and peril. Important public and private interests hang in the balance as consumers, providers, advocates, industry actors, and governments weigh increased transparency, informed consent, privacy issues, and the right to know. In Our Bodies, Our Data, Adam Tanner tangibly advances a vital conversation—adroitly articulating choices that may profoundly shape the future of health and health care.”
—A. Eugene Washington, M.D., Chancellor for Health Affairs, Duke University, President and CEO, Duke University Health System

“Adam Tanner has thoroughly researched how big pharma continues to trample on our medical privacy. This is a terrifying and strongly-argued account of how drug companies collect, analyze, and sell patient data and a must-read for anyone who has ever been to a doctor.”
—J. Kyle Bass, Chief Investment Officer, Hayman Capital Management
