Product Description

This memoir is considered to be a definitive work on America's challenge to end polio epidemics. Interweaving a personal and sometimes humorous story with the scientific development of the Salk vaccine, this book brings to light the effect of poliovirus epidemics on medical training as well as on research methods, still influenced by the Salk-Sabin vaccine race. Suitable for adult and young-adult reading, this memoir is also becoming popular in Advanced Placement high school science classes and on required reading lists for medical school students in medical history classes and humanism societies.
