I was expecting a regular book with lots of great and current information. This turned out to be a workbook for her seminar. The second half of the book is her powerpoint presentation! The first half gives some links and resources for you to do your own research, and has some information. But, it's hard to read because it's not structured like a regular book with chapters and written in a sequential way. It literally is a "resource guide".

While there was some helpful information in there for me, IMHO it's not worth the $35. Maybe the DVD is better or maybe this book makes more sense in conjunction with the DVD.

I recommend Neil Miller's "Vaccines: Are They Really Safe and Effective" instead. It has a lot of the same information and is organized for people who want to learn about vaccinations from a book, who are not attending Dr Tenpenny's seminar.

I own both the DVD and the Resource guide. Even though I've inspected many other books on vaccines, Dr. Tenpenny covers it the best. She really gives practical information on vaccination background and what concerned parents can do to protect their children. She covers what rights you have to abstain from vaccinations (some states like California is fairly friendly, other's like Texas are more militant), etc., or what you can do to decrease the odds of your infant/childr being harmed if you must submit to a vaccination. Very excellent coverage of the material.

Dr. Russel Blaylock has a very good vaccine chapter in his "Health and Nutrition Secrets that can save your life."

Not all "vaccine" books are equally good, some (like Stephanie Cave's book) are terrible, even giving credit to vaccines for the tremendous drop in desease outbreaks that occurred PRIOR to the respective vaccines being introduced. Makes one wonder what other payrolls she might be on.

This is not a *bad* book; there is good information in it. However, I did not find this book to contain substantial information that I had not already found in other books (Neustaedter, Cave, etc.) Perhaps it would be better with the DVD, but I think it's overpriced as a book. The powerpoint slides section was a real bummer, too. It's obvious that the slides were prompts for a lecture... I was left wondering what else she might have said.

It reminds me of a college textbook... I paid too much for it to throw it away, so it's gonna sit on my shelf "just in case" I *might* need an obscure reference one day.

I am so glad that Dr. Sherri Tenpenny has become obsessed with vaccines and the CDC. I have learned more about the classic question "Are vaccines safe and effective?" from Dr. Tenpenny than any other source.

Dr. Tenpenny explains the common vaccine myths and why people should question vaccinating. For instance, there is the myth that childhood diseases have a high rate of serious complications. She points out the in 15 years (from 1980 to 1995) 92 deaths were reported from pertussis, that is 6.13 deaths per year from the disease. While in 1998 alone, there were 17 reported deaths the day after a pertussis vaccine. She makes these arguements well.

The following sections are less substanial. She goes through each vaccine and gives their ingredients. She has a few graphs that demonstrate that diseases were already on the decline when the vaccines were introduced. The section on legally avoiding vaccines was weak. She simply has letters that it looks as though she thinks you should submit. That wouldn't help with the school issue at all. She doesn't even mention the medical or religious waivers or how to get them. She includes some parent resources, and articles and abstracts that were sort of dry.

But the part I liked the most is the section that is a print out of her power point presentation. I had listened to her DVD Vaccines: The Risks, The Benefits, The Choices several times in my car on the way to and from work, always wishing I had time to make notes. Now with this book, which is best as a companion to the DVD, I don't have to make notes. I do recommend her DVD as it really brings this subject to life.
