In his new book about the pharmaceutical industry, New York Times best-selling author Robert L. Shook goes behind-the-scenes of seven well-known prescription medicines to chronicle the journey of chemists and researchers working to transform medical theory into lifesaving medicine. Miracle Medicines: Seven Lifesaving Drugs and the People Who Created Them is a classic American story of triumph and defeat. These are the stories of the often-unrecognized medical heroes — chemists, physiologists, medical and clinical researchers, and engineers who conceive these lifesaving medicines, and the patients who benefit from them. In each chapter, Shook explores each medicine individually, revealing what really happens to bring a new drug from theory and research to the all-important clinical trials and, finally, to FDA approval and delivery to your pharmacy. The drugs profiled are: Advair Gleevec Humalog Lipitor Norvir Remicade Seroquel More About Robert Shook: Robert Shook has authored more than 50 books, including Longaberger, a New York Times number-one bestseller.
