In our modern world, we often hear about scientific discoveries that lead to new drugs and new ways to treat disease. We hold fundraisers and race for the cure. Do we find the cure? Or are we just finding new ways to spend money on costly treatment plans instead of getting rid of the diseases themselves?
Miracle Man is a fascinating novel that explores intelligence, corruption, politics and the pharmaceutical industry. This is fiction, but is timely and will make you think about the real life implications of the questions raises in the novel.
The author, William Liebowitz, doesn’t have a professional background in the sciences. He has a law degree from Columbia and currently practices entertainment law in New York. This gives him a unique perspective that works.
Miracle Man is an entertaining read that will leave you wondering “what if…” It would be a good choice for a book club to read and discuss.
