    Well written and exhaustively researched. However, it could have been condensed by 50% and would have been even better.

    From someone that lost someone close from this epidemic. Thank you for writing this book.
  • Gut wrenching

    By pupskhutch
    This book is an incredibly detailed look at three generations of a family driven by greed and utterly void of any amount of remorse for their purposeful destruction of humanity in order to line their pockets. The work is very well written!
  • interesting story

    By CreekNine
    interesting to get some of the background of what went on behind the curtains of Purdue. I am just so glad that my physician never put me on OxyContin to fight my chronic neck pain. I could have been one of the statistics. Such a shame of those that were given prescription to such an addictive drug.

  • A Quintessential Piece of the Opioid Epidemic

    By sonichoneydew
    The research required for a book of this scope - to tell the multigenerational story of the SACKLER family - is staggering. Absolutely amazing work from Keefe. The book couldn’t be more relevant if it tried. This is the quintessential piece in understanding how the opioid epidemic came to be. Please read this book. Our moving forward as a people is dependent upon holding families, like the SACKLER family, responsible for their actions in ruining the lives of so many people.
  • Fascinating

    By BirdoWorky
    Crazy inside story of the opioid epidemic. The Sacklers truly were greedy and evil.

  • They don’t care about our health

    By egg$
    Really eye opening. These companies don’t care about our health. They only see dollar signs. Do yourself a favor and read this.
