Product description

Review

Geoffrey Smith Business Week A riveting tale that has more in common with a John Grisham thriller than with tomes on modern science.

John Schwartz The Washington Post The inside skinny...a high stakes tale of adventure and intrigue: Barbarians at the Lab. Werth's work is a gem.

John Travis The Boston Globe Fascinating...gripping...must reading for anyone curious about an industry that promises to revolutionize medical care in the next century.
