Oh, all right, not the actual detectives themselves, but my latest book from Enslow, Disease-Hunting Scientist: Careers Hunting Deadly Disease. That’s the cover at left.
Here’s the blurb from the back:
Working from high-tech labs in Canada or remote villages in Africa, epedemiologists travel the world trying to keep us safe from deadly diseases. Learn how these “disease detectives” are coming up with new wayts to fight disease, and find out if you have what it takes to become an epidemiologist, too!
I’d seen that before. What I hadn’t seen, until the books arrived today, was this very nice cover quote from Jonathan M. Samet, MD, Professor and Flora L. Thornton Chair, Director, Institute for Global Health, University of Southern California, Los Angeles (quite the title!):
“This book captures the excitement and significance of epidemiology and the hard work of being an epidemiologist. It is a great starting point for those who want to benefit world health by becoming an epidemiologist.”
Very nice. And now that I have my author’s copies, I can get the book entered into the Saskatchewan Book Awards before the first deadline of July 31.
