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 effort 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?

Five Star Review on Amazon By m grace
Traci Medford- Rosow’s memoir provides the reader a richly textured and rare glimpse into the legal battle for the intellectual property rights of the drug Lipitor, while employed as Chief Intellectual Property Counsel, for one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in America (Pfizer). At core, Inflection Point is a pyscho-social narrative about the personal and professional challenges, setbacks and triumphs the author experienced during the litigation process, and as captivating, her keen insight into life itself. Medford-Rosow artfully infuses the nodal “points” in time that changed Pfizer’s trajectory and with candor and self-reflection painfully depicts her own “points” of emotional transcendence. At times, with the weight of the world seemingly on her shoulders, the author is battle tested in all aspects of life and has the psychological scars to prove it. Nevertheless, her fearless nature shines brilliantly. Like a light-house at sea she is a “point”—a beacon of hope— and an illustration of tenacious courage for each of us as we encounter the difficulties inherent in work, life, and love. A wonderful read for those interested in legal issues in the corporate sector; a must read for those individuals who appreciate the changing nature of the human condition and the possibility of turning points.
