I love reading nonfiction about pharmaceutical drugs, their development, use, methods of action, etc. What's out there lately that I should read? Recent books I've read inside.

I loved both Bad Pharma (read it twice!) and Bad Science by Ben Goldacre, and just finished Phake by Roger Bate. Read The Emperor of All Maladies and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. I'm fixing to read Cracked by James Davies. I don't mind having to look things up that can be a bit complicated; it doesn't need to be strictly pop science or layman's terms. Bonus for Kindle books.
