Jane’s Dust: A Tale of Talc, Deceit, and Death by Ronald E. Gordon, Ph.D. and Joel Brokaw

How much do we know about the products that lay on our shelves and desks? Sometimes the ones we treasure and trust the most are the ones who are secretly taking a minute of our life away bit by bit! It’s paramount that we take note of the ingredients in our items and research the possible harm they bring. Tedious as it may be, this simple act can save a life — not just ours, but others too! Jane’s Dust: A Tale of Talc, Deceit, and Death, exceptionally written by Dr. Gordon and Joel Brokaw, aims to alarm everyone on the dangers of talc.

Dr. Gordon and Joel Brokaw had written the book in its full creative interpretation of facts and data gathered from actual experiences of patients. Although the book is a work of fiction, the intensity of the story brings a realistic fluidity thanks to the author’s way of writing — well-paced, indeed.

The verbiage is clear and the jargon usage is not complicated to comprehend. Following the story was an emotional coaster ride; it spurs hope and longing for betterment in every chapter. I must say I am convinced with the book’s important message.

The book exposes the dangers of talc to public health through the skills, fortitude, and principles of Dr. Gordon and Joel Brokaw.

The title itself, “deceit”, is the perfect representation of the true enemy of human life. Reading the title alone already had me thrilled to go on a reading journey with this book and it clearly doesn’t disappoint! It’s among the best reads I’ve had. I’m honestly dumbfounded with how things went in the story. It’s that one-of-a-kind book that needs to be bought not only to entertain but also to educate. This could change the product purchases of every household and decline the number of dangers! The fight goes on and the chances of winning this fight begin with buying the amazing work of Dr. Gordon and Joel Brokaw.
