What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
If it had a factual basis.
Would you ever listen to anything by Max Fitzer again?
Not if this is any indication of the quality of his work.
Which character – as performed by Jennifer Howe – was your favorite?
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
I work in the medical field. I am a strong critic on the pharmaceutical industry. They are greedy and dishonest, but this book does not limit its critique to these problems. This book has many, many inaccuracies. Type 1 diabetes is not at all curable with diet. Type 2 diabetes can be improved and sometimes controlled with diet, but not always. The book mentions homeopathy as a good way to treat disease. This is pure voodoo. There were many other mistakes.
Any additional comments?
DO NOT buy this audiobook if you want to learn real facts.The book, The Truth About the Drug Companies by Marcia Angell is a much better choice.Dr Angell gives a stern critique of the drug companies which is fact-based.
Would you try another book from Max Fitzer and/or Jennifer Howe?
What was most disappointing about Max Fitzer’s story?
There is a glaring inaccuracy so big that I don't think I can take anything in this book as fact. I am a health care professional with a Type 1 diabetic child. There is NO LIFE STYLE BEHAVIOR or CURE for Type 1 diabetics. "Big Pharma" does not have a PILL and to say it can be cured with changes in lifestyle in a five year old child is not only wrong but cruel to both the child and the parents.I know the pharmaceutical companies do BAD THINGS but to include Type 1 diabetes is too big an error to overlook. Audible should correct this before selling one more copy of this book.
What does Jennifer Howe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
How could I know?
What character would you cut from The Big Pharma Conspiracy?
