Reviews - What do customers think about Prescription for Greed?

Fantastic!  Jan 17, 2006
I bought this after reading Tarnished by the same authors. They are both riveting page-turners. It really makes you stop and think about corruption in the medical and political worlds (and how that corruption overlaps). I can't wait for another novel by this father and son team.
Prescription For Greed  May 28, 2001
How do individuals of honesty and integrity slip into the gripping vise of financial greed? Why has our nation's healthcare system descended into a chaotic battle between the forces of personal and corporate gain, and that of compassion? Is our medical system deteriorating? How can ethics and morality be restored? Prescription For Greed answers these questions, as it enlightens its readers about the most serious problems our country must face. Its quality of life, even survival, depend on the issues the authors explore. The book is as excursion into the problems of modern medicine, set within the context of a mainstream novel; an instrument of education, at the same time it entertains. Co-author J. Willis Hurst is a former chariman of the Emory School of Medicine and has been involved in healthcare and teaching for over thirty years. The insight the novel provides is fueled by his passion for his field, as its characters reveal the profession's deepest secrets. His son, co-author Phillip W. Hurst, is an international business consultant. Specializing in behavioral systems analysis, he has a PhD in Psychology, which gives him extraordinary perception as a writer. This knowledgeable team provides a crucial resource for healthcare consumers. You can learn as much as you might in a college course, as you experience a compelling and interesting story. Because the authors live in Atlanta, where the story is set, they are able to add a distinctive regional flavor. The plot surrounds the fictional Dr. Connelly. A leader in medicine and cardiology, he has grounded his proteges in respect and honor for their vocation. When one's situation causes him to be vulnerable to financial temptation, all are affected. They undergo trials and tests of their values, as well as their friendship. Their patients' and their own lives depend on the outcome. The choices they make will altar them forever. Threaded with political intrigue, as well as romance, Prescription For Greed is well worth reading.
Southern cooked look at health care,politics,lust and money. Interesting characters blend with twisting plot. Great Read!
Bio thriller  Dec 23, 2000
A must read for everyone.
Great Story  Dec 23, 2000
What a great read! The characters are well described and very interesting, the story line is complex and riveting and the geographic location is superb.

I enjoyed the insight into the "blood bath" world of crooked politicos and the world of medicine. After this book I have greater respect for the dedication, compassion and sacrifice made by those who choose the medical profession.

Much thanks to the authors. This book should be made into a movie. Who would play Connie?
