Attorney Jim Gottstein is a human rights hero. At grave personal and professional risk to himself, he made public the inside information demonstrating that Eli Lilly & Co was hiding the deadly effects of its so-called antipsychotic drug Zyprexa. Jim’s new book, The Zyprexa Papers, is a dramatic and revelatory exposé coupled with an inspirational message that people can and do recover from deeply distressed psychospiritual experiences, including psychosis, without taking drugs that can destroy their health and even take their lives. Yet there is much more to Jim's career, including many successful cases before the Alaska Supreme Court on behalf of patient rights. There is no other lawyer in the world like Jim Gottstein. This is a great discussion between two lifelong reformers.
