Book Review: The Panic Virus by Seth Mnookin

The Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science, and FearThe Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science, and Fear by Seth Mnookin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a very dense read. It is an excellent report on the panic caused by the anti-vaccination crowd. Parents want someone to blame when their child is autistic. They want some miracle cure which are many times offered by people outside of the scientific community. I would recommend it to people who are interested in the vaccination vs. autism issue and how science has been overwhelmed by woo. I learned a lot about how talk shows and others in the media have spread misinformation by media savvy people.
