KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of chemotherapy in a scientific simplification of today's great progress in the fight against disease, which, without concession to popularization, is impressive and interesting reading for the layman. The story of the new drugs, the sulphonamide groups, which have been widely effective in checking diseases of all kinds, lowering the mortality rate enormously. Closes with a plea for government subsidized research as a protection against the manufacturers, who through rivalry, secrecy and self interest defeat wider ends.
