I'm a writer and consultant. After my wife was injured during a cardiac procedure at Johns Hopkins, I began to research how such a thing could happen at "America's Best Hospital." The stunning story unfolded as I read transcripts from FDA hearings wherein doctors revealed the unvarnished truth about corporate driven medicine -- with devastating results for patients. A leading patient safety advocate says this about the book: "What Dan has done is to expose the mechanisms of medical corruption, and particularly the corruption of medical research. There has been a lot of excellent investigative work in the press about corruption, conflict of interest, and subversion of the medical literature. But I have not seen anyone do what Dan has done, with detailed research documents that use the doctors' own words against them. The value of Dan's book is in the fact that it lays bare an example of the issues that fuel the skyrocketing rates of medical harm and the medical costs that go with it. I think it is a bombshell. But people need to understand the significance of what he is saying."
