""The Forever Fix" is a wonderful story told by one of our most gifted science and medical writers. In the tradition of Siddhartha Mukherjee's "The Emperor of All Maladies," Ricki Lewis explains complex biological processes in extremely understandable ways, ultimately providing crucial insights into the modeling of disease and illustrating how gene therapy can treat and even potentially cure the most challenging of our health conditions." - Dennis A. Steindler, Ph.D., former Executive Director of the McKnight Brain Institute, University of Florida ""Lewis adeptly traverses the highs and lows of gene therapy and explores its past, present, and future through the tales of those who've tested its validity." -"The Scientist" "The Forever Fix" is a wonderful story told by one of our most gifted science and medical writers.

Steindler, Ph.D., former Executive Director of the McKnight Brain Institute, University of Florida "In this impressive, meticulously researched study of the exciting new developments in gene therapy, geneticist and journalist Lewis (Human Genetics) looks closely at the history of setbacks plaguing the treatment of rare genetic diseases as well as recent breakthroughs...Yet with each success, as Lewis recounts in this rigorous, energetic work, possibilities in treating HIV infection and dozens of other diseases might be around the next corner." --Publisher's Weekly (starred review) "A fascinating account of groundbreaking science and the people who make it possible." --Kirkus "Ricki Lewis gives us the inspiring story of gene therapy as told through Corey's eyes--literally. Her book delves into the challenges modern medicine faces--both in its bitter disappointments and great successes--but it goes much deeper than that. With empathy and grace, Lewis shows us the unimaginable strength of parents with sick children and the untiring devotion of the physicians who work to find 'the forever fix' to save them. But best of all Lewis gives us a story of profound hope." --Molly Caldwell Crosby, author of The American Plague: The Untold Story of Yellow Fever, the Epidemic that Shaped Our History and Asleep: The Forgotten Epidemic that Remains One of Medicine's Greatest Mysteries "The Forever Fix is a wonderful story told by one of our most gifted science and medical writers.

Reseña del editor:

"The Forever Fix" is the first book to tell the fascinating story of gene therapy: how it works, the science behind it, how patients (mostly children) have been helped and harmed, and how scientists learned from each trial to get one step closer to its immense promise, the promise of a "forever fix," - a cure that, by fixing problems at their genetic root, eliminates the need for further surgery or medication.
