“Whether it’s the tobacco industry, the pharmaceutical industry, or the fossil fuel industry, vested interests have repeatedly sought to attack and discredit scientific findings that have revealed the public endangerment by their products. David Michaels should know—he’s been fighting the good fight for more than a decade to expose the bad actors and bring them to justice. Read this book to learn what we’re up against and how to fight back.”

—MICHAEL E. MANN, author of The Madhouse Effect ​
