“An immensely readable description of the challenges that encourage overuse of antibiotics and discourage new drug development…Superbugs is a worthy exposition of the challenges we will have to surmount to incentivize more responsible antibiotic use until we discover new ways of dealing with infections.”―Ramanan Laxminarayan, Science
“As antibiotics become increasingly ineffective, modern medicine faces a global threat. Can we do anything to stop it? That’s the question posed by the book Superbugs: An Arms Race against Bacteria. [The] authors look at the rise of drug resistance, and their research is sobering.”―Late Night Live (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
“Jim O’Neill helped take the issue of antimicrobial resistance from the science lab to the global stage. He and coauthors Anthony McDonnell and William Hall impart a compelling story about the battle against what could become a mass killer of humanity.”―David Cameron, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
“Addressing antimicrobial resistance requires the kind of thoughtful yet action-oriented analysis that this vitally important book provides. The messages in Superbugs should be heeded by individuals, government officials, and policymakers around the world.”―Larry Summers, former director of the White House National Economic Council
“With superb insight into one of the greatest health threats to humankind, Superbugs highlights the need for an integrated, multifaceted approach to treating drug-resistant infections. This riveting book makes a compelling case for action.”―Peter Piot, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

Da Farmacista sono testimone di questo trend assolutamente negativo. D’altronde è comprensibile che quanti non abbiano ricevuto una formazione scientifica siano all’oscuro di molti processi che avvengono all’interno del nostro corpo e in quello dei microrganismi.
Ecco perché le conoscenze contenute in questo libro andrebbero portate alla luce e rese libere di girare fra tutti. Noi professionisti della salute abbiamo l’importante compito di rendere questi concetti facili da capire. A partire da oggi e subito.
