Fagin weaves fascinating background material on epidemiology, statistical analysis and more into this hard-hitting chronicle. A gripping environmental thriller.
IT’S HIGH TIME a book did for epidemiology what Jon Krakauer’s best-selling “Into Thin Air” did for mountain climbing: transform a long sequence of painfully plodding steps and missteps into a narrative of such irresistible momentum...
...rich in detail about the scientific detective work required to figure out whether all that pollution did anything to people’s health.
A crisp, hard-nosed probe into corporate arrogance and the power of public resistance makes this environmental caper essential reading.
Fagin navigates these murky waters expertly, delving in the book into the roots of epidemiology, the study of disease distribution.
