Reviews

"An enlightening and troubling book." --The New York Times

"Helen Epstein is one of a rare species: the scientist turned storyteller. . . . [A] blunt, informed critique." --Salon.com

"The UN and President Bush should not just read Epstein's book, they should distribute it around Africa." --The Sunday Times (London)

"Elegant prose, a scientific background, and a journalist's searching anecdotal eye." --Nature

"Sometimes a bolt of clarity shoots out of the blue . . . as it will for readers of this book who yearn for insights on how a deadly virus now infects an estimated 25 million Africans and has killed untold millions more." --The New York Times Book Review

"Epstein has a compelling thesis, and she explains it in lucid, sometimes extraordinary prose." --The Nation
