Scientists Weigh in on "The Fever"

Reviewers in the mainstream media have been really kind to "The Fever," for which I'm tremendously grateful, as their comments are getting the book out into the world. But I've awaited reviews from scientific journals with the most trepidation. Not only because the scientific community is notorious for its harsh judgments--scientists rarely give unreserved approval, especially when called upon to critique--but because I really wanted to get the science of malariology right in the book.
