The Prisoners of Comfort examines the soul-crushing working conditions that are tolerated in 21st Century Retail Pharmacy. These conditions can be dehumanizing and some say are worse than the conditions in a modern factory. Mister Plagakis has never been shy about expressing his opinions, ideas or criticisms about the job and profession of pharmacy. He has lent his viewpoint in his Drug Topics column JP at Large for over 20 years. Jim's classic statement is: "It's the job, stupid. The profession is just fine." In The Prisoners of Comfort, Jim examines the institutionalization of the pharmacist. He presents the view that pharmacists who succumb to a life of comfort, that is won by making a very nice wage, become prisoners, indeed. He presents the players: the prisoners, the jailers and the wardens. The psychological dynamic is clear, but is there a way out? He says that there is!

    Plagakis is a dreamer, but a beautiful dreamer with this one. He hits the target right on the bullseye. Five stars. No one else has this kind of vision, finely focused from many years working in pharmacies. If I don't say so myself.
