Splendid Solution Jonas Salk and the Conuest of PolioDren from contracting polio The book takes place in New York where the most dense number of cases we found during the height of the epidemic dense number of cases we found during the height of the epidemic 1955 It begins by describing the constant fear felt by citizens especially parents of young children during this time Many people wanted answers to uestions there weren t answers to and people begun creating theories that the government was making little white coffins because they were purposefully creating vaccinations that would infect their children Jonas Salk one of the highly accused scientists working on were purposefully creating vaccinations that would infect their children Jonas Salk one of the highly accused scientists working on vaccine took a lot of abuse of during the epidemic Many people did not trust his vaccines and thought he was going to sabotage them To prove he genuinely made a good vaccine he administered it to himself his wife and their sons as well On April 12th 1955 the results of the first trial of vaccines tested on over one million children were collected at the vaccine proved that it was effective Jonas Salk had gone from an untrustworthy man to a hero overnight Two years after the creation of the vaccine the number of polio patients went from 15000 per year to 60 per year The book Splendid Solutions offers great information about the fear of everyone in the United States during the polio epidemic It gives a great representation of what it was like back then when mothers were afraid to take their babies out of their home in fear of them being infected Kluger also informs the reader about all the precautions that families took in order to reduce the risk of infection men did not bring their shoe in the home cats were drowned and illed and children weren t allowed to eat ice cream among many others All of these illogical causes were created because of confusion and desperation for answers This book covers everything you would ever need to How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead know about polio from the causes the creation of the vaccination and the crippling effects of the disease on its victims A lot ofnowledge can be taken from this book and it will prove to be a valuable source while writing my capstone project Relatively easy read but too light on the science in my opinion Brings up issues like the seasonal nature of polio but never delves into them Also takes too positive of an outlook on Salk s work The first human trials of his vaccine were conducted on menta This book was well written in many ways It managed to teach me a lot about vaccines without being dry at all It also conveyed the fear of the polio era well Great photographs and historical detailBut the reason I can only give this book 3 stars is its relentless positive spin on all of Salk s actions It was frustrating that the book chose to focus on one main character and then gave such a poor sense of him as a complex individual The endless heroic spin I got it the first time Salk s skill with giving ids shots was detailed did it have to be repeated every time seemed to lead to nearly demonizing other researchers particularly Sabin and making every choice he made look faultless should we not explore where the line between confidence and dangerous overconfidence is particularly given the history of earlier polio shots As a result the book ultimately felt untrustworthy a critical fault in a non fiction bookThis book has inspired me to look for a book or two about the A friend recommended this book to me I told her that I was one of the test cases for the vaccine Finally got around to reading

Salk was in medical school just as a president crippled by the disease Franklin D Roosevelt was taking office and providing the impetus to the drive for studies on polio By the early 1950s Salk had already helped create an influenza vaccine and was hot on the trail of the polio virus He was nearly thwarted though by the politics of medicine and by a rival researcher eager to discredit his proposed solution Meanwhile in 1952 polio was spreading in record numbers with 57000 cases in the United States that summer alone In early 1954 Salk was weighing the possibility of trials of a not yet perfected vaccine ag. ,

H Jef This is an excellent narrative if you re looking for a rosy view of Salk s accomplishments The author is too ind to Salk and refuses to acknowledge any of the scientist s detractor s arguments I suppose it s hard to do so when the close relatives of the subject of your biography provided you with all of the personal correspondence of said subject as was the case here This book provides parallel biographies of Jonas Salk and the campaign to conuer the polio virus Today we tend to forget how scary polio was Its psychological impact was especially devastating because it attacked mostly children Until 1955 when the Salk vaccine was introduced polio was considered the most frightening public health problem of the post war United States Annual epidemics were increasingly devastating The 1952 epidemic was the worst outbreak in the nation s history Of nearly 58000 cases reported that year 3145 people died and 21269 were left with mild to disabling paralysis with most of its victims being childrenOne of the puzzling ironies of polio is that it became prevalent as society began to control other infectious diseases through improved sanitation and water supplies The best theory to explain this irony is that prior to the 20th century the polio virus was The best theory to explain this irony is that prior to the 20th century the polio virus was but immunity to it was widespread This is because prior to the 20th century the population was exposed to a constant and low level of the virus through the poorer sanitation conditions that were generally present This condition enhanced a natural immunity within the population When the environment became less contaminated the prevailing immunity to polio was conseuently decreased Of people exposed to the polio virus only 5 percent have symptoms Of those who become ill one in twenty of the cases are fatalOne thing I don t understand is where the virus disappeared to in the winter months Its occurrence was seasonal with it returning with warm weather If it needed a human host it seems like it should get worse in the winter like the common cold when people are in close proximity to each otherThe author did a very good job of including various human interest stories The horror of the disease was brought home to the reader by telling the stories of some of victims Even though the reader nows how the story is going to end the narrative unfolds in such a way that it builds suspense The book reads like a medical thrillerOne thing I noticed is that Albert Sabin developer of a medical thrillerOne thing I noticed is that Albert Sabin developer of oral polio vaccine comes across in this book as a jealous small minded competitor of Salk s He was critical of Salk at every step of his research and recommend that Salk s vaccine not be used because he thought his own vaccine based on a live virus would be better The only problem was his vaccine was a couple years later in development and waiting for it would cause thousands to be victimizedThe book tells of Salk s home life I fell in love with his family consisting of his wife DonnaCarol and three boys One touching scene is when one of his young sons hides under his bed to avoid getting a shot of the vaccine I was saddened to learn in the book s epilog that Jonas and DonnaCarol were later divorced I fear that Salk may be another one of those men who switched to a younger trophy wife after he became rich and famous The book includes some critical remarks about Jonas Salk His failure to thank his laboratory staff at the public announcement of the vaccine s success is mentioned several times Apparently some of his colleagues never forgave him for Ainst as the summer approached the prospect of thousands children being struck down by the disease The results of the history making trials were announced at a press conference on April 12 1955 The vaccine works The room and an entire nation erupted in cheers for this singular medical achievement Salk became a cultural hero and icon for a whole generation Now at the fiftieth anniversary of the first national vaccination program and as humanity is tantalizingly close to eradicating polio worldwide comes this unforgettable chronicle Salk's work was an unparalleled achievement and it makes for a magnificent re.
