THE PRICE OF HEALTH The Modern Pharmaceutical Industry and the Betrayal of a History of Care

by | Read by John McLain

Contemporary Culture • 15 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2021

Narrator John McLain sounds like one of the many voices that listeners have been hearing on newscasts as he asks at the start of this audiobook whether we could have anticipated the pandemic. He keeps that urgent tone as authors Michael Kinch and Lori Weiman examine the evolution of pharmaceuticals, the rules that govern them, and their current high cost. Listeners will feel horror as he tells of children dying from poison in a sulfa drug in 1937 and other pharmaceutical-related problems. The urgency in McLain's voice hits home with the authors' call for transparency in drug pricing as opposed to the current opaque nature of pharmaceutical research and pricing processes.
