    I just received this book yesterday via mail and want to know if anyone else on the boards is reading this book so we can discuss it.

    Chasing Medical Miracles - The Promise and Perils of Clinical Trials by Alex O'Meara

    http://www.alexomeara.com/

    There's an interview with Alex on his website.

    Chasing Medical Miracles and this website are by journalist Alex O'Meara who as a diabetic suffered from life-threatening hypoglycemic unawareness. The book chronicles how he participated in a risky and groundbreaking clinical trial to "cure" diabetes. The book also reveals how a multi-billion dollar industry of private companies conducting trials with little oversight has taken root and quietly become a major part of the American medical establishment.
