Reviews

"It is a thriller - a beautifully researched and paced thriller - and is destined to be a classic piece of science writing in its navigation of the nexus of personality, research and ethics." -- Edmund de Waal, author of The Hare with the Amber Eyes "An extraordinary story and Wadman is to be congratulated, not just for uncovering it but for relaying it in such a pacy, stimulating manner. This is a first-class piece of science writing'" -- Robin McKie * Observer * "Extraordinary...The Vaccine Race is a tremendous feat of research and synthesis, its lucid technical explanations combined with forays into the business politics of big pharma, and portraits of the scientists whose work has saved untold lives." -- Steven Poole * Daily Telegraph * "Marvellous...fascinating...Wadman doesn't shy away from some very difficult and unpleasant truths...The Vaccine Race bears comparison with Richard Rhodes's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Making of the Atomic Bomb. I can pay no higher compliment to Meredith Wadman and her fine book" -- Manjit Kumar * The Literary Review * "Wadman's brilliantly researched book unfolds like a thriller, but asks some tough ethical questions along the way." -- Sophie Ratcliffe, Associate Professor of English Literature, Oxford University
