are two of the most compelling books about the opioid crisis.
If you’re looking for an in-depth look at the opioid crisis, two books you won’t want to miss are Patrick Radden Keefe’s “Empire of Pain” and John Preston’s “Fall”. Both books provide an incredibly detailed and powerful exploration of the devastating effects of the opioid epidemic. Keefe’s book is a gripping narrative that follows the Sackler family, owners of Purdue Pharma, and their role in the opioid crisis. Preston’s book is an unflinching look at the lives of those affected by the opioid crisis, from addicts to doctors to families. Both books are essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the full scope of this crisis.
