The Good Fight

You may have noticed in the sidebar that I’ve been reading Autism’s False Prophets by Dr. Paul Offit. I’m happy to say that I’ve finished it, and it’s fantastic. The book lays out the autism situation and the battle against the antivaccinationists in great detail, and it’s really well-written to boot. Go out and get a copy of it now–bookstore or library, as long as you read it. You’ll laugh, you’ll get mad, you’ll want to strangle dangerous quacks like Andrew Wakefield, and if you’re like me, you’ll want to send Dr. Offit a letter of thanks afterward.
