Very interesting I didn t realize it would be so focused on malaria, but so far a neat peek into what has motivated the money behind malaria research and how we ve approached are approaching this problem I really appreciate this book for examining many sides of a single disease problem approach The author talks a good deal about the few people trying to develop a malaria vaccine, but also about those addressing the problem with treatments, prevention, and most importantly money and regulations I [...]
The thesis of this book is that it takes someone a little crazy to solve big problems It is a health science book, wrapped in biographical hero worship To this end, Shore tells us the tale of the scientists working to save the children of Africa through the development of a vaccine against the malarial parasite His point is made largely by repetition and he uses of multiple examples of the same thing, scientists who are working outside the establishment because they have big ideas and won t take [...]
One of the previous reviewers wrote that if you are only going to read one book about the quest for a vaccine to prevent malaria, this might not be the best choice I couldn t truthfully attest to that, but it was enough for me to be satsfied As it stands today, there are no vaccines that can stop infections transmitted by parasites This book explains that those who are normally infected with malaria are the marginalized, the mute, the vulnerable They have no political voice and no money to find [...]
I was disappointed with this book but only because I had thought it would be an in depth look at malaria and the effort to find a cure It turns out that 5% was information about malaria and 95% was information about Steve Hoffman and the business of producing vaccines It IS about malaria but only in the sense that everyone profiled is working to treat or eradicate malaria.The biggest problem with the book is that the author spends too much time hero worshipping Steve Hoffman and repeating the ph [...]
Billy brings a fresh perspective to a seemingly intractable social problem the eradication of malaria He does a good job balancing writing for a popular audience with maintaining scientific rigor At times, though, seemed as though he fell off this tightrope, sometimes pursuing a strain of scientific investigation beyond my point of interest and sometimes dumbing down ideas that I would have loved to explore further.At the end of the day, I think Billy s motivation was a personal quest to underst [...]
One of the most inspirational books I ve ever read it s not just about the quest for Malaria vaccine, but about men with the vision, determination, and imagination to make nothing impossible It is also about a new type of social philanthropy, which aims to eliminate market gaps that often undermine social solutions I was also pleasantly surprised at the number of female leaders visionaries Shore mentions in his book Finally, Shore s ending quote we must shape our own evolution, with faith that t [...]
Bill Shore has written an amazing book about the people seeking to do something about malaria infection in the developing world where they don t have access to the drugs like many in Western countries would Although wrapped in the cause of malaria, the book offers of a generalized statement about what it takes to solve the seemingly unsolveable problems of this world It takes unreasonable men and women who beileve that good is not good enough, also it takes people who are willing to do some cre [...]
Interesting book on the quest to end Malaria With the Bill Gates Foundation s attention and money on the issue, we are seeing an increase in attention to the problem Shore reiterates that the failure to end malaria is a failure of imagination once imagined, much progress has been made toward solutions from several different perspectives Hopefully the near future will bring one that works the malarone was very hard to tolerate There must be something better
I found both the premise and the information intriguing but the writer s organization perplexing and disjointed The last two chapters were both exceptions to that statement and very valuable information, presenting Shore s summary analysis of Philanthropy s Shifting Tides, his associated 6 lessons, and a call for Moral Imagination A worthy read.
If you re going to read only one book on malaria, I strongly recommend Sonia Shah s Fever, which is complete and way interesting This reads like an extended newspaper piece that went on for far too long and I shouldn t have bothered to finish it.
