Book Review: "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg" By Doug Bremner

NON FICTION. "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg." By Doug Bremner. Thank you, Doug Bremner. Two small words, and I mean them wholeheartedly. Author Doug Bremner made a stand against a 'Goliath' he made that stand by exposing his jugular to a huge and powerful drug company. A company that should have been accountable to more than their enormous bank accounts. They were not. His research was poo-pooed by those Academics who sought to defame and vilify his good name. His journey into exploring the drug Accutane and its side effects makes for a breathless read, I had to keep reminding myself that this work is a work of Non-Fiction. NON-FICTION! That makes it all the more compelling. Author Bremner does not paint himself as 'David' facing "Goliath" in fact he allows us to see him as a man, a man with fears, hopes, dreams and his own set of nightmares to contend with. He suffered humiliation at the hands of 'paid' so-called experts. He faced ridicule and snide comments from people who had taken the 'Hippocratic' oath. People who didn't have the vaguest intention of allowing that oath to stand in the way of them protecting their overloaded bank accounts. This book is a must read for everyone who believes in justice for all. The facts don't lie. Neither does this author. I have rated this A Five Star book. Link to Amazon.
