Sex Sells...But So Does Humor
on July 9, 2015
As a general rule, I completely detest Big Pharma and everything involved with it. I could not help but make an exception when I read Hard Sell: Evolution of A Viagra Salesman.
I appreciated the author’s quick wit, humorous sarcasm and how his insatiable desire to do as little as possible somehow translated to working smarter, not harder (pun not intended). His writing style makes me feel like he is having a conversation where he has leaned in to share privileged (and juicy) information with me, resulting in a quick read and leaving me wanting just a bit more.
Books that become movies are usually butchered by Hollywood, and while Love and Other Drugs has certainly been “Hollywood-ized”, it is still similar enough to Hard Sell that it wasn’t ruined. The book is still better, though.
