Book Summary:

This searing indictment, David Healy’s most comprehensive and forceful argument against the pharmaceuticalization of medicine, tackles problems in health care that are leading to a growing number of deaths and disabilities. Healy, who was the first to draw attention to the now well-publicized suicide-inducing side effects of many anti-depressants, attributes our current state of affairs to three key factors: product rather than process patents on drugs, the classification of certain drugs as prescription-only, and industry-controlled drug trials. These developments have tied the survival of pharmaceutical companies to the development of blockbuster drugs, so that they must overhype benefits and deny real hazards. Healy further explains why these trends have basically ended the possibility of universal health care in the United States and elsewhere around the world. He concludes with suggestions for reform of our currently corrupted evidence-based medical system.

Book Summary:

It's the ultimate nightmare scenario. Nine million people depend, utterly, on anti-retroviral drugs to stay alive. But most of the active ingredients come from just three laboratories in India. Or at least they did - until all three were ripped apart by powerful explosions. Australian medical journalist Gipsy North is at the peak of her career, helping to launch a global online newspaper, when she is thrown into the center of this storm. While the United Nations desperately rallies governments and pharma to restore the international supply of antiretrovirals, North and her colleagues race to find out who is responsible for the bombings. Although it soon becomes obvious this story will define North's career, she has no idea that it will reshape a subcontinent and push the balance of power between the world's most powerful nations to the tipping point. Pharmageddon isn't true, but it could be. The story is based on Alastair Grant's extensive experience in journalism and HIV/AIDS, and his years living in the countries where the action takes place. This fast-paced thriller is set against the backdrop of the greatest public health challenge facing mankind, and raises important questions about the role of the online media in shaping our future.

Book Summary:

We've heard the stories. Pharmaceutical companies failing to warn of side effects. Marketing drugs illegally. Whistleblowers bringing incriminating evidence of corporate machinations leading to huge verdicts and settlements. And in this true-legal thriller, it all started with butterfly ballots putting a presidential election on hold. Meet Stephen A. Sheller, an attorney whose career reads like an encyclopedia of the biggest legal cases of our time. Sheller fought tobacco companies and exposed fraud in their efforts to promote light cigarettes as safer than regular smokes, filed the first suit over the butterfly ballots in the controversial Bush v. Gore presidential election of 2000, and recovered a staggering $6.4 billion by going after pharmaceutical companies whose actions superseded patient safety. Pharmageddon: A Nation Betrayed is the inside story of Sheller's fights to hold accountable powerful pharmaceutical companies for aggressively campaigning for their product's distribution in spite of dangers and side effects many prescription drugs carry. From uncovering the devastating effects on children and elderly to defending all of our rights in an increasingly complex legal system, Sheller has uncovered greed and avarice displayed by these multi-billion dollar corporations. Discover what happens when a legal champion takes up a cause.

Book Summary:

For more than fifty years, Stephen A. Sheller, Esq., has been an icon of justice. In Lawyering in Times of Saints and Evildoers, he shares his career experiences showing how he became a highly recognized advocate of everyday people, passionately protecting citizens' basic rights under the US Constitution and law. While his fearless legal strategies have been controversial, Sheller nearly always achieves what he sets out to do. Readers interested in how the U.S. legal system works-and how it doesn't-will gain much from his first-hand accounts, including his representation of African American Union employees, wrongly jailed Black Panthers, women experiencing gender pay inequity in the 1960s and 70s, and his novel consumer fraud tactics still used in tobacco litigation today. Sheller has gone up against major corporations across the country, representing those they have hurt physically and financially or have denied the rights they deserve as citizens. He's been a pioneer of national whistleblower lawsuits, exposing corporate malfeasance ranging from credit scams to medical malpractice to environmental disasters. Part personal memoir, part legal thriller, this eye-opening book will inspire you to stand up for justice, equality, and the Constitution of the United States. This book lays the foundation for his next, Pharmageddon: A Nation Betrayed, starting with Bush v. Gore and focusing on the pharmaceutical industry.
