Description - Written in Frustration by Jack Dreyfus
Most people live one life; Jack Dreyfus has lived two. One of the greatest inventors of the 20th Century, his first life was filled with remarkable accomplishments as he founded the highly successful Dreyfus Fund. His second life began in 1963 when in the midst of a severe depression, he did an unheard-of thing: he asked his physician for a medicine not normally known to be useful for his symptoms, and returned to good health almost overnight. When he saw six others have similar results, he realized he had an obligation to investigate further. Jack Dreyfus retired from two highly successful businesses and established the Dreyfus Medical Foundation. Through the foundation he has worked trielessly, with no financial interest, to show how this medicine - phenytonin - has been reported useful in thousands of medical journals for more than 80 symptoms and disorders ranging from thought, mood and behaviour disorders to cardiovascular, neuromuscular, and pain ailments. The Foundation now has programs in dozens of countries around the world, providing assistance to millions of people suffering from psychological and physical difficulties.
In Written In Frustration, Jack Dreyfus chronicles more than 40 years of experience confronting the flaw in our system of bringing prescription medicines to the public. In the spirit of the great American satirist Mark Twain, Dreyfus employs his customary humour and wit to explore the question of how a remarkable medicine can continue to be overlooked in this country.
