AMERICAN OVERDOSE The Opioid Tragedy in Three Acts

by | Read by Dan Woren

Contemporary Culture • 12 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Dan Woren's forthright narrating style is the perfect vehicle for this compelling portrayal of the genesis and consequences of America's current opioid crisis. Although the topic has recently received much attention, McGreal's text achieves a unique level of immediacy by combining scientific and historical content with anecdotal accounts of the heartbreaking devastation caused by these drugs. Woren's even tone carries a hint of suppressed emotion as McGreal identifies the malefactors and details how Big Pharma's outrageous greed, coupled with unscrupulous doctors and an incompetent government, is inflicting addiction, suffering, and death on some of our most vulnerable citizens. Woren's masterful presentation enhances listener accessibility to this powerful analysis of a grave social problem. M.O.B. © AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2019]
