“For Erin Brockovich fans, a David vs. Goliath tale with a twist.” —The New
York Times Book Review The story that inspired the major motion picture
Dark Waters, starring Mark Ruffalo as Robert Bilott. In 1998, Rob Bilott
began a legal battle against DuPont that would consume the next twenty
years of his life, uncovering the worst case of environmental contamination
in modern history and a corporate cover-up that put the health of hundreds
of thousands of people at risk. Representing a single farmer who was
convinced the creek on his property had been poisoned by runoff from a
nearby DuPont landfill, Rob ultimately discovers the truth about
PFAS—unregulated, toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing of Teflon and a
host of other household goods. DuPont’s own scientists had issued internal
warnings for years about the harmful effects of PFAS on human health, but
the company continued to allow these chemicals to leach into public
drinking water. Until Rob forced them to face the consequences. Exposure is
an unforgettable legal drama about malice and manipulation, the failings of
environmental regulation, and one lawyer’s quest to expose the truth about
this previously unknown—and still unregulated—chemical that presents one of
the greatest human health crises of the 21st century.
