Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

Well, it's a 400 pages book. I don't have an electronic version.

Bad Pharma - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Goldacre argues in the book that "the whole edifice of medicine is broken," because the evidence on which it is based is systematically distorted by the pharmaceutical industry.[2] He writes that the industry finances most of the clinical trials into its products, that it routinely withholds negative data, that trials are often conducted on small groups of unrepresentative subjects, that it funds much of doctors' continuing education, and that apparently independent academic papers may be planned and even ghostwritten by pharmaceutical companies or their contractors, without disclosure.[3] Goldacre calls the situation a "murderous disaster," and makes a number of suggestions for action by patients' groups, physicians, academics and the industry itself.

Yes. And he also takes some time to explain why it's very important that trials protocols and all the trial data are made public.
