Reviews

"a readable pop-history account of medical research that turned out spectacularly."--Kirkus Reviews
"Guthrie vividly captures the determination and commitment of her two main subjects"--Publishers Weekly
"In a true tour de force, Julian Guthrie spans decades of intensive research amid celebrated discoveries that highlight the final successful treatment of Rh disease. Good Blood is a good read about a major medical achievement that continues to save lives throughout the world."--Dr. Jay A. Levy, MD, Professor of Medicine, UC San Francisco
"Chief Seattle said, 'All things are connected like the blood that unites us all. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it.' In Good Blood, Julian Guthrie weaves a lyrical web of science, selflessness, and soul that gives hope for a united humanity. Truly a story to be savored."--Brian Keating, Chancellor's Distinguished Professor of Physics, UC-San Diego & author of Losing the Nobel Prize
