A great book about playing with deadly organisms before the development of safety testing and quality control in manufacturing. This is the story of the development of the first polio vaccine and all of the missteps in moving to mass production. It also provides interesting perspective into the current state of medical malpractice and litigation.
Offit writes well from a medical perspective and carries the story to its conclusion.
If you enjoy medical history, read this book.
