★ ”The writing is lucid, well organized, and informative. The book’s large format allows for excellent reproductions of the many period photos, prints, and documents. Readers who are curious about Typhoid Mary . . . will find this an absorbing account of what actually happened.” —Booklist, starred review

★ ”Jarrow follows Red Madness with a second captivating book in her planned trilogy on deadly diseases. . . . Replete with archival photos, this thorough account brings readers to the present day and modern medicine’s fight against what is still a scourge in many countries.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review

★ ”A nonfiction page-turner relying upon extensive research and copious source notes, this is a fantastic addition to any library.” —School Library Journal, starred review

★ ”An unusually attractive design incorporates many photographs, such artifacts as posters and cartoons, and sidebars. More than a chronological account, this exploration pays tribute to the power of public health measures and raises questions about the ethics of protecting the public by quarantining someone like Mallon, who sued for her freedom. A top-notch addition to the popular topic of deadly diseases.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review
