by Robert Bilott
The book features the true story of a young attorney who spent 20 years building a case against DuPont for its use of the unregulated chemical PFOA authored by the attorney himself.
Author Rob Bilott was an attorney who aided corporations when he received a call from a West Virginia farmer who was convinced a creek on his property used by his family and animals was being contaminated by a neighboring DuPont landfill. Bilott eventually takes on the case and gains access to hundreds of thousands of pages of documents about studies on PFOA, one of a class of PFAS chemicals.
What started as a case for a single farmer eventually turned into a class action suit on behalf of 70,000 residents — and the realization that nearly everyone has been exposed to PFOA.
