    This book was not what I expected. With the release of the movie, I expected the book to have a love story painted throughout. After getting the to end of the book I was disappointed to have none of that love story in it. Mentions of girl friends, sure, but nothing that hooked me. What I was expecting to get didn’t match what the book was actually about.

    That being said, this is a good book. I wouldn’t rank it in my top 10, but Jamie Reidy is a good story teller and parts of the book did make me laugh out loud. I never thought that I wanted to know that much about Pfizer, but I’m glad I do.

    If you’re looking for a quirky memoir about a pharmaceutical sales rep, I would read this one. If you’re looking for a memoir laced with a love story, I suggest “It’s Kind Of A Funny Story” by Ned Vizzini.

    A really fun read and wild ride through the life a pharmaceutical salesman. Although the movie does not follow the book exactly, the commonality between Jake Gyllenhaal’s role in “Love and Other Drugs” and Jamie Reidy’s main character in “Hard Sell” do parallel one another fairly closely. Please read the book then go watch the movie! You won’t be disappointed!
