Book & Review



We have specialists catering to every aspect of our life except the poison that we pump into our body as drugs; all specialists are in control of their destiny except pharmacists, who are treated like children in their supposed area of jurisdiction; pharmacists are overeducated, underutilized and marginalized medical practitioners; drugs are chemicals and chemicals are poisons. The drugs we pump into our body at dawn can send us to our grave at dusk instead of ameliorating our condition. It is in light of these facts that this book was written to buttress the plight of pharmacists, pharmacy profession and the need to liberate the profession from bondage for the benefit of mankind. The book depicts an accurate historical account of pharmacy, its bondage, subservience, topsy-turvy fame, service to humanity and awesome contribution to the healthcare system of US/World. It also elaborates the history and shortcomings of other branches of medicine. Dean Grossman of LIU School of Pharmacy, Drug Topics survey of drug manufacturing company executives, research studies in the book, study upon study, and others vindicated clinical pharmacists as drug experts or the most knowledgeable medical practitioners about drugs/medications in the medical field yet they have to obtain permission for drug usage from other branches of medicine that do not know as much about the profession as the practitioners.


Something must be inherently wrong in a system that relegates or subjugates the best at the altar of tradition and societal indoctrination. These issues contained in the book were evident everywhere during my tour of the six habitable continents off the world (China and India in Asia, Nigeria in Africa, Australia, UK and France in Europe, Brazil in South America and US in North America). Pharmacy/pharmacist is a branch of medicine and not an errand boy of medicine.

two pharmacy in bondage books


Note: 1st Edition has two(2) different book titles, but it is just the same book.

The book gives an historical account of pharmacy, and makes a case that pharmacists, with their extensive knowledge of drugs and how they interact with each other and in humans, are underutilized by our medical profession.
