“This is a well-organized, useful, and readable treatment that captures the essence of scientific methodology.”
School Library Journal

Meet the doctors and scientists who learned to cure some of the worst diseases to strike humanity: James Lind proved that citrus fruits both cured and prevented scurvy; Edward Jenner developed a vaccine for smallpox; Louis Pasteur formulated germ theory; Paul Ehrlich was the first to use chemotherapy; Frederick Banting discovered insulin; Alexander Fleming identified penicillin; and Jonas Salk developed a vaccine against polio.
