Love and Other Drugs tells you things about the American pharmaceutical industry you'd rather not know and about practices you'd rather weren't happening. But once you pick it up, you won't want to put this book down.

Jamie Reidy is to the pharmaceutical business what Jerry Maguire was to professional sports and Frank Abagnale (Catch Me If You Can) was to bank fraud. He's the guy who's been there, done that, and walked away with the insider stories. You'll find yourself rooting for Reidy and at the same time, you'll be shocked by the realities of the world that paid his salary.

Love and Other Drugs is a witty expos of an industry that touches nearly everyone in contemporary America. It reveals the questionable practices of drug reps, nurses, and even physicians. Reidy traces his ups and downs as a rep for giant drug manufacturer Pfizer, maker of some of the most widely prescribed and used drugs in existence, including Viagra.

About the Author

Jamie Reidy, a Notre Dame grad and a former U.S. Army officer, "carried the bag" for Pfizer from 1995 to 2000. He then spent five years with Eli Lilly's Oncology Division, where he discovered there are far fewer jokes about chemotherapy than Viagra. Reidy was fired by Eli Lilly soon after publication of Hard Sell. He has since published Bachelor 101: Cooking + Cleaning = Closing, a cookbook and lifestyle guide for idiot single guys just like him. He lives in Manhattan Beach, California, where he has written several screenplays. Now he needs to start selling them.
