This is the career biography of a drug company's salesman-turned-whistleblower, I found it gripping, not least because the author has really studied the background of science and medicine relating to the book. I'm sure, therefore, that her descriptions of the legal and political facets of the story are equally accurate. The role rep's play in Canada in relation to MD's in private practice are different, of course, but I could visualize salespeople I've met being in this book.
