I thought the subject of this book was really fascinating, however, it turned out to be a very different spin on the topic than I was expecting. Although I don’t necessarily agree with Ehrenreich’s views regarding the medical world, I was intrigued by the first half of the book. But after her initial views on why some medical treatments can actually harm our health, I became bored. There’s a lot more scientific jargon than I was expecting, so I felt like a lot of the second half just went flying over my head. I think this book might have benefited from a more commercial tone – something that would have been easier to relate to if you’re not a scientist like Ehrenreich is. I’d love to see another author tackle this topic to see if I could get more out of it.
