Explore the secretive pharmaceutical industry with the women and men who control it in Strong Medicine, the newest blockbuster by Arthur Hailey. Celia de Gray makes inroads as the first saleswoman for Felding-Roth Pharmaceutical Company, but uncovers scandals, including inadequate testing of new prescription drugs and false advertising. She finds that her work, and her marriage to Dr. Andrew Jordan, pose difficult choices she didn't expect. The best-selling author of Hotel and Airport, Hailey here unlocks the doors of the giant drug industry for a frank revealing glimpse of drugs, discoveries, deals, and deceptions. Written after three years of research, Strong Medicine is both a love story and a glimpse of the miracles and money that can possibly be made in the world of experimental drugs.

    " Even tho the book is more than 20 (almost 30) years old it still provides an inside look of the "good/bad/ugly" of the pharmaceutical industry. Raises good questions.. Has anything really changed? "

    " First 400 pages was good. The book was slow and steady...but the last few pages were a bit boring... nevertheless the story line is different as it is always with arthur hailey... liked it.. "

    " Too many ups and downs in the life of the human protagonist, Celia Jordan, in frequent succession for my liking. But for a book revolving around the American pharmaceutical industry (from 50s to 80s -- the true protagonist), it kept me turning the pages. "
