About this title

Synopsis:

Featuring 15 infectious diseases—eight bacteria, six viruses, and a parasite—and one friendly fungus, this book explores significant medical themes and highlights the effect micro-organisms have on modern life. Hilarious, informative, yet deeply moving, it discusses each disease while weaving true stories of patients and their families and the difficulties doctors face. Touching upon the swine flu, golden staph, SARS, hepatitis, and HIV, this account teaches crucial lessons about public health and the human experience of disease.

About the Author:

Frank Bowden is a board member of the One Disease at a Time Foundation and an advisor for the Australian government on HIV and sexual health. He is a former coordinator of the STD/AIDS program for Australia’s Northern Territory, the cofounder of the Australian National University Medical School, and the former director of the Canberra Sexual Health Center.
