Editorial Reviews

Review

"Plague is a must-read book so revolutionary in its implications that its author courageously faced character assassination and unlawful incarceration to keep her findings from being relegated to the dustbin of medical history. Riveting, if not at times paradigm shifting, this book reveals a dark side to modern medicine that no one knows exists, but that everyone should."
—Sayer Ji, founder and director of GreenMedInfo and board member of the National Health Federation

“For anyone who is too busy to read but wants to know the inside story on the state of American science, find the time, now, and read Plague.”
—Ritchie C. Shoemaker, MD, author of Mold Warriors: Fighting America's Hidden Health Threat

“A fascinating combination. The authors weave together a fascinating medical history, a modern day scientific drama, and a legal thriller in a unique narrative that calls attention to the deep dysfunction and corruption in the heart of the medical industrial complex.”
—Mark Blaxill, co-author of The Age of Autism and co-founder of Safe Minds

“Kent Heckenlively’s riveting descriptions of Mikovits’ arrest and incarceration—she was actually jailed for her work and principles—renders Mikovits a modern day Dr. Stockman from Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People. The skilled telling of the drama that unfolded around Mikovits’ work on the XMRV retrovirus leaves the reader unable to put the damn book down.”
—Lou Conte, author of The Vaccine War

“Unbelievable!! Thank you to Dr. Mikovits and Kent Heckenlively for your courage in discussing issues of research corruption, intimidation, and the power of the medical establishment to try to conceal the truth about scientific research.”
—Wayne Rhode, author of The Vaccine Court

Plague raises questions we all need to be asking our scientists, our politicians, and our society.
—Max Swafford, educator and author
