"This is the compelling, suspenseful, down-to-earth story of a killer that has been stalking and doing away with people for thousands of years: Tuberculosis. For centuries TB in many forms was treated with everything from poultices and potions to the king's touch. The microorganism that causes the disease was eventually identified, more effective treatments were developed, and the cure for TB was thought to be within reach. But the TB germ simply will not die; drug-resistant varieties continue to plague and panic the human race. The "biography" of this deadly germ, an account of the diagnosis, treatment, and "cure" of the disease over time, and the social history of an illness that could strike anywhere but was most prevalent among the poor are woven together in an engrossing narrative supported by 70-plus archival prints and photographs. Includes bibliography, source notes, and index"-- "From one of the most acclaimed writers of nonfiction for children, Invincible Microbe illuminates the seemingly unstoppable killer that's been haunting us for centuries: tuberculosis. Well-researched and including over 100 archival photos and prints, this compelling "biography" of a deadly germ is a must-read"--… (mais)

This was facinating book that both described the centuries old battle against TB, but did a good job of describing the development of the medical profession. ( )

Jim Murphy and his wife Alison Blank have created an important, compelling, non-fiction narrative of the “Scourge to the Earth,” otherwise known as Tuberculosis. Using historical background, as well as photographs and other primary source documents, the story of Tuberculosis and its affect on humans as far back as 500,000 years ago is documented.

My VOYA ratings: 1P, 4Q

This book takes on a subject that most young readers have no interest in, a subject that has a history that dates back to the beginning of mankind. The writing is clear, engaging, and memorable. I learned a lot from this book.

This is the story of a killer that has been striking down people for thousands of years -- tuberculosis. This nonfiction mystery looks at the history of the disease and its treatment throughout time, as well as the search to find the cause and cure. The scientific and historical information is filled with human drama as well as photographs that bring the story to life.

An excellent "biography" of the dreaded disease told from the perspectives of both science and social history. Not as gripping a narrative as An American Plague but still quite fascinating. ( )
