About the Book.
Over ten years, across four continents and more than 240 interviews, investigative journalist and Fortune contributor Katherine Eban has uncovered nothing less than a public health crisis, in Bottle of Lies: The Inside Story of the Generic Drug Boom. This exposé of the generic drug industry reveals rampant fraud across generic drug manufacturing – including data and testing fraud, multi-tiered manufacturing ensuring the worst drugs make it to the least regulated markets, and extreme measures taken to avoid FDA scrutiny. Drawing on exclusive accounts from whistleblowers, inspectors and regulators, as well as over 20,000 confidential internal FDA documents, and thousands of internal corporate records from several generic drug companies, Katherine Eban reveals an industry where fraud is prevalent, companies falsify data, and executives circumvent almost every principle of safe manufacturing to minimize cost and maximize profit. Meanwhile, patients unwittingly consume adulterated medicine with unpredictable and even life-threatening effects.
