Yes, Big Pharma is excellent. He's been sued and threatened because of it.
However...a more controversial book and even better, IMO, is his "Bad
Science: Quacks, Hacks, and Big Pharma Flacks" which covers the scams of
quack medicine that many on the left hold to like acupuncture, homeopathy
(officially sanctioned in Britain) and chiropractic.  The great thing about
this book is on *method*. He explained in great detail, but easy to
understand language, how clinical trials are run, how double-blind testing
is conducted and why alternative "medicine" is fraudulent because not a one
of them can stand up to a blind or double-blind trial.

The best part of his book explains how Britain cut sucked into the
anti-vaccination scam that caused the deaths of children whose parents kept
them from getting vaccines. He goes over the methodology of vaccinations
and how the anti-vax movement there was exposed a hoax and how this was
accomplished. A truly excellent book.
