Synopsis: Most people live one life; Jack Dreyfus has lived two. One of the greatest investors of the twentieth 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 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 tirelessly, with no financial interest, to show how this medicine—phenytoin—has been reported useful in thousands of medical journals for more than eighty symptoms and disorders ranging from thought, mood, and behavior 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 forty 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, the author employs his customary humor and wit to explore the question of how a remarkable medicine can continue to be overlooked in this country.

About the Author: Jack Dreyfus is probably best known for his accomplishments in the financial arena. When he was thrity-three, he became senior partner of a New York Stock Exchange firm. He founded and managed a mutual fund that became so successful that Life magazine called him "the most singular and effective personality to appear in Wall Street since the days of Joseph Kennedy and Bernard Baruch. Since then, he has lived a second life devoted to revealing the many uses of the drug phenytoin. He is the author of several books.
