Overdosed America: The Broken Promise of American Medicine is a book about unnecessary healthcare.
A reviewer for BMJ called the book "the latest in a series of searing indictments of a medical profession apparently duped by the false promise of technology, and too often compromised by cold hard cash from the companies selling the drugs and devices".
Another reviewer said that in the book the author "presents a strong indictment of the evidence that dictates medical practice, a challenge that is credible only because Abramson backs up his statements with detailed analyses of the prevailing evidence".
