KIRKUS REVIEW

Here is a very readable presentation of a recent chapter in medical history that reveals much of the bickering, backbiting and ballyhoo that went into the research that resulted in a partial control of polio. Salk and Sabin, the laboratories' triumphs and disasters, the Foundation involvement and eventual switchover, is aggressively, but not unfairly, reported. Credit goes where credit is due in this less than awe-stricken account of big science and its management.
