38: Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors, and the Drug Company that Addicted America by Beth Macy
Macy does a deep dive into the opioid crisis looking at both the history of OxyContin and opioids in general interspersed with stories of addicts and their families. I’ve already read a lot and listened to enough podcasts that address the opioid crisis that I don’t feel like I learned much from this book, but I would definitely consider it a seminal work on the subject. A lot of research went into this book and for anyone wanting to know about how we have ended up where we are this is an excellent resource. I give it an 8 out of 10.
