Just finished reading Superbug: The Fatal Menace of MRSA by Maryn McKenna. A non-fiction book about a disease that is now deadlier than AIDS in the U.S., it reads like a Clancy novel, patiently explaining the science while drawing you in to the stories of those who suffered its effects. I don’t like medical dramas, but this is a great book. And reading the last three chapters in a hospital ER waiting room was surreal. Buy more soap, and then read this book!
