It's A Must-Read

This is the most important book I've read in years, and I can honestly say that it has permanently changed the way I buy drugs. Think that brand name drug is expensive? Maybe - probably, actually - it's just an example of the axiom "you get what you pay for". This is a very compelling, very credible, very well researched, and mostly well written "deep dive" into the world of foreign made generic drugs and the FDA's failure to ensure their efficacy and safety. There are heroes and villains within both the Indian pharma companies and the FDA, but the heroes are swimming against the tides of profit, politics, and bureaucracy. I find that this book fits perfectly with my own experience working for multinational Fortune 500 companies in general, and specifically on Indian culture and Americans' failure to understand the differences vs. our own. Every bit of this story fits perfectly into a John Stossel world-view. I highly, highly, highly recommend this book not only as a compelling story, but for its possibly life-saving impact on your health and that of people you care about.
