Product Details

Praise

“It’s a physician’s-eye-view on the products that fill our medicine cabinets, but Sekeres includes patients in the mix, too. A public that, in his words, ‘revolts, protesting loudly enough to be heard, to provoke change’ is the true driver of this engaging book.”
Erin Blakemore, The Washington Post

“A thought-provoking book that confronts readers with all of these difficult questions while keeping them glued to their seats through Sekeres’s skillful and self-reflective retelling of the Avastin hearings.”
—Bill of Health, Harvard Law School
