Reviews

... Hotez isn't pulling any punches. * Foreword Reviews *
Recommended for popular science readers looking to refute the antivaccination debate as well as readers interested in children's public health. * Library Journal *
A uniquely authoritative account... This book is a must-read for parent groups, child advocates, teachers, health-care providers, government policymakers, health and science policy experts, and anyone caring for a family member or friend with autism. * Precision Vaccinations *
Peter Hotez has 2 words for his fellow scientists: Speak up... [Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel's Autism] seeks to clear some people's muddied perspectives on autism and vaccines while also sharing his journey with his daughter Rachel. * Global Health NOW *
A tour de force in the field. I have read many book on vaccines and vaccine policies and this one stands out among all of them. Perhaps it is the way Dr. Hotez seamlessly weaves in his and his family's experiences with Rachel's autism. He covers the diagnosis, the daily trials and tribulations, the frustrations, and the successes... I can't recommend this book enough and hope it has a wide audience of physicians, parents, students, and policy makers. -- Dr. Amesh Adalja * Tracking Zebra *
Dr. Hotez's third published book combines the deeply personal story of his experiences as the father of a child with autism and his equally intimate and detailed knowledge of both vaccine science and what's now known about what does (and does not) cause autism. As a scientist whose research focuses on developing vaccines against an array of devastating tropical diseases that overwhelmingly effect the world's poor, and as one both capable and willing to inform others in terms understandable to the general public, his viewpoint is by equal degrees credible and vitally important... This is a well-reasoned and reasonable book; a well-structured and convincing defense of true science in the age of fake news and rampant pseudoscience. -- Jim Lee * JIMLEEAUTHOR Blog *
