“Silicone on Trial offers a meticulous and readable accounting of the breast implant fiasco, when an agency head’s arrogant mismanagement wrecked an industry and needlessly terrified millions of women, behavior that reveals a pernicious form of government corruption.”
— Henry Miller MD, Former Director, Office of Biotechnology, U.S. Food and Drug Administration
“A refreshing account based on fact and science, plus a vindi- cation I welcome after forty-six years on the corporate side of silicone devices.”
— Jan Varner, CEO, Specialty Surgical Products, Inc.
“A must read for surgeons frustrated by years of FDA paternal- ism, also for patients seeking truth about breast implants or any other silicone device.”
— James Wells MD, Past President, American Society of Plastic Surgery
“A compendium of silicone regulatory horrors that reads like a Tuchman epic. When the author highlight’s government’s inability to change its mind, observers of FDA misbehavior like me will nod in sad agreement. Silicone on Trial is important history for the science community, the public, and the media.”
—Gilbert Ross MD, Medical Director, American Council on Science and Health
