Reviews

"A fascinating book about disease and the startling responses to it, ranging from terror to love." -- Paul Theroux
"Tayman's noble account makes you want to stand and applaud." -- Mary Roach, The New York Times Book Review
"Riveting. Tayman can stand toe-to-toe with Erik Larson (Devil in the White City) in his ability to weave meticulously researched material into a fascinating narrative. He certainly can keep a reader up at night." -- Detroit Free Press
"Tayman reconstructs a fascinating history." -- The New Yorker
"A must-read." -- Time
"Impressively researched . . . at once eye-opening, shocking, and inspiring . . . the kind of book readers are sure to tell their friends about." -- Rocky Mountain News
