Bad Pharma Review

Bad Pharma: How Drug Companies Mislead Doctors and Harm Patients - Ben Goldacre

One of the best books I've read this year.


A lot of sometimes pretty dense information, but to me at least very useful, with a lot of insight and new information.


The most I've got out of this book was an insight into the internal workings of medical academia as well as the pharmaceutical industry.

The fact that it focused on actual systematic problems, and gave reasonable solutions for many of them was highly enjoyable to read, especially in contrast to the usual "oh the big bad I mean pharmaceutical industry, is bad, because, well it's bad" rhetoric that makes my skin crawl.
