Vaccines continue to be a hot topic with the measles outbreak and the Ebola virus. In his latest book review of On Immunity by Eula Biss, Bill Gates takes a close look at the origins of the fears behind vaccinations — and why they spread so quickly — and how to best address them. “Vaccines are at once the source of both super-fast ideas and super-slow ones,” Gates writes. “Tiny injections of misinformation about vaccines often race around the globe in minutes while, in the words of Mark Twain, ‘the truth is still putting on its shoes.’ ” Released in 2014, author Biss takes on the “chronic condition of fear” from the perspective as a new mother in On Immunity, including the “metaphors and myths surrounding our conception of immunity and its implications,” according to the Amazon description.
