Summary
The author tells the story of his work as head of the FDA and the investigation which was based on a simple question: "'Why doesn't the FDA regulate the consumer product that is the nation's number-one killer?' ... Kessler digs deep to explain how an insidious and lethal industry was able to keep a nation in its grip for more than half a century, and how a small team at a government agency fearlessly faced it down."--Jacket
