Reviews

Jim O'Neill helped take the issue of antimicrobial resistance from the science lab to the global stage. He and coauthors Anthony McDonnell and William Hall impart a compelling story about the battle against what could become a mass killer of humanity.--David Cameron, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
Addressing antimicrobial resistance requires the kind of thoughtful yet action-oriented analysis that this vitally important book provides. The messages in Superbugs should be heeded by individuals, government officials, and policymakers around the world.--Larry Summers, former director of the White House National Economic Council
With superb insight into one of the greatest health threats to humankind, Superbugs highlights the need for an integrated, multifaceted approach to treating drug-resistant infections. This riveting book makes a compelling case for action.--Peter Piot, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
An immensely readable description of the challenges that encourage overuse of antibiotics and discourage new drug development...Superbugs is a worthy exposition of the challenges we will have to surmount to incentivize more responsible antibiotic use until we discover new ways of dealing with infections.--Ramanan Laxminarayan"Science" (04/27/2018)
[L]ucid and thoughtful... Superbugs provides a set of policy prescriptions, framed in pragmatic terms meant to motivate self-interested politicians.--Jerome Groopman"New York Review of Books" (06/28/2018)
As antibiotics become increasingly ineffective, modern medicine faces a global threat. Can we do anything to stop it? That's the question posed by the book Superbugs: An Arms Race against Bacteria. [The] authors look at the rise of drug resistance, and their research is sobering.--Late Night Live (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
Excellent.--Choice (11/01/2018)
