Press & Praise
Here's what I like most about this: the author assumes that the reader is an intelligent, thoughtful person whose questions require thorough and respectful answers.
This highly readable book helps people understand how vaccines are developed and evaluated, giving them the tools they need to make good decisions for themselves and their children. He describes the science in language that addresses a wide range of fears and misconceptions and promotes clear thinking.
During my thirty-one years as a CIA economic analyst, I came to appreciate clearly written, well-researched, objective analyses of important issues—Dr. Myers's book qualifies on all counts and includes everything you need to know about his specialty: vaccines. The early chapters cover the history of vaccines, how and why they work, and the rigorous approval process they go through to be certified as safe and effective, while later chapters discuss the horrible diseases that they prevent, most of which are still a threat to the unvaccinated. Dr. Myers identifies his sources, provides links for further reading, and when he offers an opinion, clearly identifies it as such.
