Summary

Is poliovirus eradication an achievable and worthwhile goal or a misapplication of public health efforts? Thomas Abraham poses this question in Polio: The Odyssey of Eradication, as he explores the complex and conflicting paths through the quest to see the end of polio. It's a tale of personalities as well as biology, of evolution and ecosystems.
