The short answer is no. Summaries of the book are also difficult to find, but you might be interested in a discussion of the book by Malcolm Gladwell. At the New Republic, Gladwell reviews two books pertaining to the tobacco industry, Smokescreen: The Truth Behind The Tobacco Industry Cover-up by Philip J. Hilts and Ashes To Ashes: America's Hundred Year Cigarette War, the Public Health, and The Unabashed Triumph Of Philip Morris by Richard Kluger.

The closest movie you could probably watch regarding the tobacco industry is the 1999 whistleblower movie, The Insider, starring Al Pacino and Russell Crowe. It is supposedly based on the true story of Jeffrey Wigand, whose insider stories about the Brown and Williamson laboratories eventually led to a billion dollar settlement against the tobacco industry.
