Pamela Weintraub's book is compelling, clear and troubling. (Patti Adcroft, editorial director of Discover magazine)
In Cure, Unknown, Pamela Weintraub has produced both the definitive book about Lyme disease and associated disorders and a survivor's account of a grueling medical odyssey. Weintraub is a masterful science writer and storyteller, and she tackles the quarrels and quagmires surrounding this baffling illness with intelligence and pathos. This is an important and unforgettable book, destined to make a lasting contribution to the field of investigative health journalism. (Kaja Perina, editor in chief of Psychology Today)
A thoroughly researched and well-written account of the disease's controversial history. (Jane Brody, New York Times)
Millions suffering from symptoms of a mysterious disease need suffer confusion and loss no longer. If you want to know the real story behind Lyme disease and how to find your way back to health, read this book. (Mark Hyman, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, UltraMetabolism)
Science journalism at its best. (Amiram Katz, MD, Clinical Faculty, Neurology Department, Yale School of Medicine)
Weintraub turns a tragic yet eye-opening experience into a shocking exposure of what can happen when egos, greed, and peer pressure supercede objective evidence, allowing patients to suffer chronic, disabling illness. (Donna Chavez, Booklist)
Exhaustively researched and highly recommended. (Tina Neville, Library Journal)
A tale of biological complexities, scientific turf battles, political intrigue, human egos and money - lots of it. (Dorothy Kupcha Leland, Sacramento Bee)
In the war of information on Lyme disease, patient activist groups have started from a marked disadvantage to the medical establishment in terms of visibility and credibility. That may be changing, and science journalist Pamela Weintraub's new book, "Cure Unknown: Inside the Lyme Epidemic" (St. Martin's Press), could be one reason. Weintraub, a senior editor at Discover magazine, uses her family's protracted Lyme odyssey as the jumping off point for an exploration into the history, politics and, predominantly, the patient experience of the tick-borne disease. (Susan Morse, Washington Post)
