What are some must read books that will help me understand the biopharma industry? I'd like to have a clearer view of the process from preclinical to marketing stage and just have a general background of the different major players, spec pharma field, the rise of CDMOs and CROs in the space, etc.

I don’t know of one book that delves into all the topics you are interested in. The other problem is that this field is ever-evolving. I recommend Drugs from Discovery to Approval. Once you have the basics down, google the rest of the topics.

Look in pubmed for literature on this. There’s also free webinars every once in awhile, look at LinkedIn for those
