The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg: A Review

Doug Bremner

Doug Bremner's "THE GOOSE THAT LAID THE GOLDEN EGG" is a well written story about a drug, a drug company and the marketing of an acne treatment which caused the deaths of some of the kids who took it.  The kids to whom Accutane was prescribed had cystic acne, a skin condition that is temporary and unique to adolescents, for the most part.  It is embarrassing, it is potentially scarring; it is not life threatening, but is also not something that can be ignored by a self-conscious teenager.

A researcher who discovers that the company making the drug does not care that it's acne treatment has the potential to cause death, Doug Bremner, M.D., is shocked to discover that the drug company does not care that the drug has lethal risks.

Ultimately, it is the story of Doug Bremner the man that makes "The Goose That Laid The Golden Egg," a must read.  It is the story of a Doug Bremner's personal transformation when confronted by haunting memories of loss and faced with making potentially career destroying decisions when determining what  to do about his discovery.  It is the story of a man with integrity, who is flawed told with candor.  The Goose Who Laid The Golden Egg offers searing testimony of what lies within one man's heart.  The testimony is all the more powerful and compelling for being offered by a man who is telling a story of how we can be "treated," to death for a non-fatal condition; while illuminating unadulterated truths about himself.
