Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This "comprehensive look at the rarely discussed secretive and mysterious aspects of immunization" is based on numerous papers on vaccination researched by the author, whose interests are in natural health and herbal medicine. A perusal of the bibliographical references, however, shows the vast majority dated prior to 1990. Murphy has a definite bias against vaccination, which is evident throughout the book. Taking an anti-innoculation stance similar to Randall Neustaedter's in The Immunization Decision ( LJ 6/1/90), he does not discuss the benefits of immunization. While his book provides worthwhile information on its risks and possible adverse effects, concerned parents should also consult literature that addresses the positive aspects of immunizations. Recommended for collections providing information on alternative medicine or those attempting to provide comprehensive consumer health coverage.

From Booklist

Murphy's book is important in part simply because it is one of only a few that shed light on the little-known hazards of vaccination. (Vaccination is the term sometimes used instead of immunization, since, as Murphy shows, vaccines do not guarantee immunity from childhood diseases.) Many contain toxins, and some are known to cause injurious reactions--even death. Despite, or perhaps because of, this disturbing evidence, most parents seem afraid to investigate the issue, and some are unaware of it. Then, too, there are those parents who decline to inoculate their children--a controversial but conscious decision. This book's availability in libraries is critical; Murphy's thoroughly researched and well-documented effort will, one hopes, make decisions about inoculations somewhat easier. Murphy should especially be commended for emphasizing the development of natural immunities, such as occur when babies are breast-fed. Jo Peer-Haas

Format: Paperback
The whole immunization issue is so one sided. This book finally gives the other perspective, in an easy to read format. From an educator, and parent's standpoint the book is convincing that immunizing your child is not the only way. No one can force you to immunize your child if you have a belief it's not right. Read this book and finally become educated, confident and informed!

When I was pregnant with my first baby I knew that I didn't want to immunize any of my children. Up until I read this book I had really no "proof" that my confictions were correct. Thanks to this book, I began a serious investigation into immunizations. I now have tangible info to share with pro-vaccine parents. It only takes one light in a dark world to bring truth!

This book provides very useful information for anyone trying to decide whether to vaccinate their children or not. It tells about how each vaccine is made and gives background information on different diseases. Also talks about the benefits of breastfeeding as far as vaccinations go. This was very helpful to me!

"James Murphy is an excellent resource / counselor for parents in need of information on infant vaccination. In his book "What Every Parent Should Know About Childhood Immunization' he presents a knowledgable unbiased account of the health dangers of vaccination. A must read!" Issues in D.

Format: Paperback
I felt that Murphy doesn't even try to be balanced. He uses words like "witches brew" and "cauldron" to conjure negative images. Also, the book is somewhat outdated, even though this last reprint was 2005. The most recent information I saw was 1989, and he gives facts that are outdated, including that there is no chickenpox vaccine. Now, all this is coming from a person who is skeptical about vaccines. I just didn't find the book tasteful, or all that helpful. Much better is "The Vaccine Book" by Robert W. Sears. He gives facts, but helps you to come to your own decision regarding each individual vaccine rather than making blanket statements about all vaccines.
