Overview

Replete with intrigue, Inflection Point is the true story of the author and her legal team at Pfizer who found themselves at the epicenter of the decade long, world-wide, multi-billion battle for control over the world's most prescribed pharmaceutical product, Lipitor®. The author charts the course of the team's courageous eff ort to protect the company's most prized asset, and the unforeseen personal consequences suffered as a result.
In New York, London, Paris, Copenhagen, and Ottawa, from the White
House to Wall Street, in boardrooms and courtrooms, in the media and behind closed doors, critical disputes are won and lost in a struggle for survival.
Inflection Point is a fast-paced, high-stakes legal thriller and memoir.
But it is also a cautionary tale posing a question as fundamental as it is critical: Have the efforts to bring affordable medicines to consumers helped to cripple the very industry that invents life-saving drugs in the first place?

A HEROINES STORY A HEROINES STORY unfolds. This is not so much a book about Big Pharma, legal battles and patent challenges, but a story of a heroine. The story unfolds across the globe from America to Canada to Europe...in the Corporate Boardrooms and the Courts of Law. However the real story is the Author's Heroic journey in life that would end up with disclosure of a 30 year childhood secret...a secret that would define her mind, body and soul throughout her adult life. If you have ever been on the unthinking treadmill of life seeking truth about past events, their true purpose and meaning...and in the throws of victory in your professional life you still seek something that is missing...this story you must read. After 30 years of work in Corporate America as a C level Executive and after coming to terms with my truth and secret from the path, I honour this author for writing this book. Author Medford-Rosow is a true Heroine. High ratings for this body of work are blessings to the world from readers who "get it".

Reviewed by Lex Allen for Readers' Favorite A true story that reads like a suspense thriller, Inflection Point by Traci Medford-Rosow provides not only an insider’s look into the massive pharmaceutical industry, but an emotionally charged story of personal conflicts, defeats and victories. Medford-Rosow spent ten years of her life in an epic battle to protect the patent rights of a corporate giant, Pfizer; a battle that opened old wounds and challenged her beliefs of right from wrong. The underlying stories, the sub-plots in Inflection Point are intricately woven into the primary back-room and court battles that keep the reader involved and turning the pages. There is insight into the enormous power of the pharmaceutical industry, its predominance over global politics and the lives of millions of people. Here, too, is the story of a woman’s life. Medford-Rosow lets it all out in her first book. You’ll read about her trials, tribulations, victories and defeats on her path to becoming a Vice President and Chief Intellectual Property Counsel at Pfizer, and the intrigues of legal battles that guarantee a mind-boggling experience. As an opponent to the overbearing dominance of 'Big Pharma' on the lives of people, this story confirmed my personal beliefs about this industry. What surprised me, in a good way, was the personal story of Medford-Rosow. How she maintained her professionalism and dedication to her employer while battling her personal demons was a great story in and of itself. I highly recommend Inflection Point for readers of legal machinations and courtroom battles, and for those who love stories of personal sacrifice and ultimate victory over their demons.
