Praise

“This book will lead students to consider what other medical, scientific, or social events are changing our life expectancy.”–School Library Connection


“. . . Johnson offers younger reading audiences a highlights reel of, mostly, scientific advances that have worked to reduce mortality rates—from variolation and vaccination to the controversial but famine-reducing effects of producing nitrates and chickens in industrial quantities. . . A refreshing change of pace for readers weary of hearing that things are just getting worse.”–Kirkus


“. . . a fascinating look at how science and certain politics have improved human life.”–Booklist
