Polio: An American Story by David Oshinsky

Review from The New York Times Book Review:

A rich and illuminating analysis…. The story of polio captures all the drama of high-profile and high-stakes research in an America in social flux: the tension between sober scientists and sensationalistic media; experimental disagreements grounded more in envy and ego than in technical details and data; contested credit for breakthroughs between those who labor at the laboratory bench and those who work at the patient’s bedside.

–Jerome Groopman
