If you wanna be angry and raise your blood pressure to prehypertension levels, read this book. All of the heinous practices in the pharmaceutical industry can be traced back to Arthur Sackler, and down through his demonic progeny. I'm certain you don't know just how deep this stuff goes.

When I was 13 a cool older girl at school gave me a silk screened patch that said "RIOT NOT DIET". I promptly sewed it onto my backpack and never looked back. Reading this book is the literary equivalent of a cool older girl giving you that patch. 

Everyone needs to read this, particularly all the people who believe they don't need to. Trust me, you do.
