Reviews:

“A fast-paced narrative and a cautionary tale about how public health policy, corporate practices and public relations, and lawyers’ chutzpah and frenzy for fees can converge in a place we all know well.” –Associated Press

“A new, thriller-style account of the horrors of that E. coli outbreak and the subsequent events, including the groundbreaking rulings making O157:H7 an “adulterant”. –Mark Bittman, The New York Times

“Spartan prose delivers a chilling, page-turning lesson in food safety.” –Kirkus Reviews

“Movie-like …Benedict does a dramatic public service by showing us what happened behind the scenes.” –Christian Science Monitor

“Part thriller, part investigative expose, and all human, “Poisoned” lays out in rich, untold detail the tragic yet ultimately inspiring story behind the largest deadly E. coli outbreak in history.” –Armen Keteyian, CBS News

Happy Holidays – whatever you celebrate, or not.  I wish all well – especially my opponents.  May your Holiday meals be safe, and I wish for all of us less work for you in the New Year.

    This book demonstrates that positive reform can come when people are informed, diligent, persistent, compassionate, honest and skilled in the pursuit of justice;
    very sad situations can lead to improvements.
    There are many helpful attorneys who consider their clients first, and some of them are well portrayed in Poisoned.
