This book presents as good an explanation of the process of drug discovery and development, written for a general audience, as probably exists anywhere in English. Written by a journalist and driven by a story-telling style, the narrative explores the often serendipitous and lengthy process by which prescription drugs wend their way from laboratory bench to pharmacy shelf. The book’s heroes are the obscure bench scientists who persist in their work for years and fight for their discoveries, sometimes against heavy odds.
