Katherine Eban, the author of Bottle of Lies, is an investigative reporter focusing on the pharmaceutical industry for many years.
She lectures frequently on the topic of pharmaceutical integrity.
In a review for The New York Times, critic David Dobbs said Bottle of Lies “is an invaluable exposé, a reportorial tour de force and a well-turned epic.”
A review in goodreads.com said Bottle of Lies “takes us into a world where generic drugs are designed and manufactured.”
“A decade-long investigation with international sweep, high-stakes brinkmanship and big money at its core, Bottle of Lies reveals how the world’s greatest public-health innovation has become one of its most astonishing swindles,” it added.
The review said Bottle of Lies “exposes the deceit behind generic-drug manufacturing— and the attendant risks for global health. Drawing on exclusive accounts from whistleblowers and regulators, as well as thousands of pages of confidential documents, Eban reveals an industry where fraud is rampant.”
