Trully speaking im a little bit dissapointed that the love story form the film was just a fiction. Passei a maior parte da obra ansiosa, desejosa por chegar ao fim do livro, fim esse que parecia um destino longinquo! Em primeiro lugar, continuo a no perceber a razo do ttulo da obra ser o amor é o melhor remédio, j que esta se refere maioritariamente ao zithromax e no ao viagra (que poderia mais facilmente ser associado ao amor em primeiro lugar, continuo a no perceber a razo do ttulo da obra ser o amor é o melhor remédio, j que esta se refere maioritariamente ao zithromax e no ao viagra (que poderia mais facilmente ser associado ao amor). Reidy has appeared live on cnbcs power lunch, squawk box and closing bell, and on cnns in the money.
Amor pelo quê? Pelo trabalho? Ele no o tinha! Ele um completo desorganizado, sem métodos de trabalho, s queria festa e descanso. Ive been simultaneously interested in and disturbed by the practice of pharmaceutical sales for quite some time and was curious to read this insiders account of his time in the industry. It has however helped to re-solidify my views against the fda and the slackers tasked with pushing drugs that are either unnecessary or harmful onto the general populace.
I liked that he wrote about his personal experiences and didnt feel the need to make any kind of broader statement-he lets the reader make his or her o ive been simultaneously interested in and disturbed by the practice of pharmaceutical sales for quite some time and was curious to read this insiders account of his time in the industry. Now hes a grown up man, a successful author and more importantly, in the movie version of his book jake gyllenhal plays him. Acabamos por ter a certeza de que, nas vendas farmacêuticas, existem muitos esquemas e o autor (visto que é uma biografia) é uma personagem bastante caricata que arranja forma de ter um bom ordenado sem fazer quase nada.
Someone who even though i moved away in the 6th grade, made his mark on me long ago. There were many events i could relate with in what was formerly known as big pharma that were true and comical at times. Now, heres the big problem jamie reidy, the author, is kind an entitled asshole.
I really did ought to get around to watching it! I wrote it some time ago. But i dont get out to the cinema very often (i have young children and no established baby sitter), so i thought id check out the book it was based on. Also, as someone who has worked in sales, its interesting to see how similar (and more so different) a drug rep is.
They could have come up with a great comedy for the history books, a la the hangover. As a pharma sales rep, he seems to have believed that the route to sales success involved building rapport and anything but discussing the drugs with doctors and hes then surprised to get such poor sales results. Therefore, theyre going to be t it looks a lot of reviewers didnt like this book because the author is self-absorbed at times. I i find it hard to believe that reidys shenanigans didnt cross the line from juvenile to unlawful. Hes the guy whos been there, done that, and walked away with the insider stories.
I was looking out for maggie surely the movie studio wouldnt just invent such a big part of the story? (answer yes, they would it seems that the book and the film bear only a superficial resemblance to one another. Ive found the information that it is non-fiction story, therefore i was quiet curoius about the book. Amor pelo quê? Pelo trabalho? Ele no o tinha! Ele um completo desorganizado, sem métodos de trabalho, s queria festa e descanso. I still havent seen the film, but it was only last night that a friend recommended it to me. Jamie himself in the epiloge talks about how he failed readers in his book bc he didnt invite them into his hopes, fears, dreams, etc.
Este livro nunca mais terminava, foi uma desiluso! O autor no me convenceu com esta autobiografia! No tem liço de vida nenhuma, no cria empatia com o leitor. The accounts mentioned in the book are most definitely accurate in terms of what has happened in the realm of pharmaceutical marketing. I wouldve been pissed off that the book and the movie are pretty much mutually exclusive. Reidys second book bachelor 101 cooking cleaning closing is a cookbooklifestyle guide for single guys. I enjoyed the book insofar it flowed well with some interesting stories about being a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company.
As an author, he makes the opposite judgement call, dwelling instead way more on the where what how when of his time in pharma sales and gives shallow gloss to his personal story. Still, since he is an entertaining writer and the world of pharmaceutical sales is so compelling to me, i found the book still to be worthwhile. With equal parts self-confidence and self-mockery, reidy tells it like it is in the drug-selling trenches that are our local doctors offices. The author comes across as a pretty standard sort of guy i think ive met his english counterparts a fair few times hes a lazy, competitive underachiever mostly interested in beer, football and sex, although faintly embarrassed by the latter. I desperately wanted to like this book because there are so few first-person accounts of working in big companies. In the epilogue, continued, added after the book was initially published, reidy admits that he failed to properly reveal his hopes, dreams and fears. It was more just the inside look at a drug reps start and tactics and commentary. Estava esperançosa quanto ao livro, mas nada tem a ver com o filme, sem ser a parte de jamie ser um vendedor farmacêutico e falar sobre o viagra. His first book hard sell the evolution of a viagra salesman offers a self-deprecating look at the life of a drug rep, c his first book hard sell the evolution of a viagra salesman offers a self-deprecating look at the life of a drug rep, climaxing in his selling viagra.
