The blogosphere is just on fire talking about Paul Offit’s new book, AUTISM’S FALSE PROPHETS. I've been getting Google Alerts every day and I continue to be surprised by the passion some of the reviewers show. Paul is supposed to appear on the TODAY show Thursday and NEWSWEEK is reportedly running a piece in the coming week or two. If you haven't picked up this controversial book, now is the time to do so.
I’m also very pleased to report that Paul has just added another kudo to the list. The American Medical Writers Association has recently named Paul’s last book, VACCINATED: ONE MAN’S QUEST TO DEFEAT THE WORLD’S DEADLIEST DISEASES, its first-place winner for 2008 for nonfiction directed to the public and health-care consumers. This fascinating look at the brilliant life of vaccinologist Maurice Hilleman also covers the history of vaccines in general and is a "must" read for anyone interested in medicine and history.
