    • A fascinating look at one of the most important medical breakthroughs in recent history and the controversy surrounding who deserved credit for the discovery, which involved “huge scientific egos, the coveted Nobel Prize in Medicine, and great amounts of money. The dispute also involved tense congressional investigations and delicate negotiations between the presidents of the United States and France.”
    • The narrative, filled with accounts of doctors compiling clues and evidence to identify a killer disease, is as engrossing as any thriller novel.
    • Clear, detailed writing and diagrams make complex scientific ideas accessible.
    • Raises interesting questions about intellectual property rights and the benefit—or folly—of sharing research.
