evidence based, passionate and practical, i now definitely going to change my attitude to reps and promotional activities
Brilliant. Important book which is well performed. Hopefully read by many doctors and policy makers.
I am an infectious disease physician. 'Bad Pharma' is a book about the failure of implementing evidence based clinical medicine, the factors contributing to it and the fake fixes. This is an eye opener, useful for all MDs whether involved in clinical trials, receiving pharma reps or going on conference trips with pharma and other “jollies”. (we all say that we are not influenced…) Also interesting is the conflict of interest that Journals have in publishing clinical trials.

A brilliant, witty, shocking and important look at the failures involved in our medicines, not just of the companies themselves but also of regulators, academics who literally hire out their names and reputations and others.
It isn't at all difficult to follow, you need no specialist knowledge, it isn't dry or dull and it talks about things that affect us all.
It is a book that matters and one that will help you make informed decisions about your own health.
Hopefully it will galvanize enough change that in the future we will know if the medicines we take and buy as a society actually do what they claim to.
If I could only recommend one book I have read, it would honestly be this one.

It's a well thought out and eye opening book. As Ben progressed through the horrible things going in the the medical industry at the moment, it just got more intense. Heavy information through out the chapters. But don't worry as after each chapter, he summarises and suggests ways we could progress in a positive direction. Brilliant book, definitely worth a look.
