"This is the Moneyball of the pharma world, the story of one drug company's quest to transform the pharmaceutical industry and a deeply revealing look into a world where breakneck capitalism meets life-saving medicine.The $325 billion-a-year pharmaceutical business is America's most challenging and one of its most profitable. It is tougher in just about every way than any other enterprise: from the towering biological risks inherent in its mission to treat disease; to the thirty-to-one failure rate in bringing out a successful medicine after a candidate clears all the hurdles to get to human testing; to the billion-dollar-plus cost of ramping up a successful product; to operating in the worlds most highly regulated industry with the possible exception of nuclear power. The Antidote tells the story of Vertex, a maverick drug company led by the charismatic Joshua Boger and a small group of entrepreneurial young scientists who broke off from Merck when it was the world's best drug maker, indeed the most admired business in America because they thought they could make drugs better. Building upon his widely praised The Billion-Dollar Molecule, Barry Werth captures the full scope of Vertex's twenty-five-year drive to liver breakthrough medicines and transform the drug industry. The Antidote draws upon unprecedented inside reporting spanning more than two decades to provide a groundbreaking close-up of Vertex's inner workings and the ferocious but indispensable world it inhabits"--Provided by publisher.

What if ‘positive thinking’ and relentless optimism aren’t the solution to the happiness dilemma, but part of the problem? Oliver Burkeman turns decades of self-help advice on its head and paradoxically forces us to rethink our attitudes towards failure, uncertainty and death. It’s our constant efforts to avoid negative thinking that cause us to feel anxious, insecure and unhappy. What if happiness can be found embracing the things we spend our lives trying to escape? Wise, practical and funny, The Antidote is a thought-provoking, counter-intuitive and ultimately uplifting read, celebrating the power of negative thinking. ‘Burkeman has written some of the most truthful and useful words on happiness to be published in recent years’ Guardian

The Antidote for War and Discontent is a compilation of philosophical essays and poems centered around the fundamental principles of wisdom gained through the words of five great philosophers and the teachers of agape. Robert Price, a former Baptist minister who has been in private practice as a psychotherapist and mental health consultant for over forty years, shares a thesis that examines not only the laws of evolution in order to gain a better understanding of competition for selection, but also how human nature can either sink us or lift us up, depending on the application of either knowledge or love. Price applies the observations of Socrates, Epicurus, Epictetus, Aristotle, and Plato to practical modern day problems and offers insight into how human nature can potentially be transformed in order to make competition, and all laws of nature within us, more progressively positive than negative. Finally, Price studies the Greek philosophy that details three kinds of love as well as their meanings, expressions, and effects. Price presents a compelling case for a new way of thinking about the power of nature and the role evolution plays in securing a cultural evolution that ensures a better and safer human species.
