I'm currently reading the following books for a review--both come out in January:

The Panic Virus: A True Story of Medicine, Science, and Fear by Seth Mnookin, who's an editor at Vanity Fair and wrote the New York Times bestseller Feeding the Monster. Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All, by Paul Offit, previously well known as the author of Autism's False Prophets and a Point of Inquiry guest

I'm not going to comment more right now, as the books are stirring up a lot of ideas but my thoughts aren't complete. But these are both pro-vaccine books by well established authors, and for that reason, I know blog readers here will be interested in both of them. So click the links or the covers for more. I'll say a lot more once my review is published.
