Book Review: Polio: An American Story

Polio: An American StoryPolio: An American Story by David M. Oshinsky
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another must read for anyone entering the biological sciences..! A great medical history book that really gives an insight into the human fight against the Poliovirus that left children permanently disabled, and sometimes in an iron-lung. This book brings home the torment suffered by children and parents alike during the desperate search for a prevention throughout the decades of the last century.
