"Bitter Pills is a superb and fascinating journey into the high-stakes, high-voltage, semihidden world of prescription drugs: the drug manufacturers themselves, government regulators, scientists, susceptible doctors, naive patients, and angry consuer groups. Fried's account is fast-paced, provacative, and complex. Bitter Pills is not only an important book, it is a riveting one."
-- Kay Redfield Jamison, author of An Unquiet Mind; professor of psychiatry, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
