The depth of the author's research on Dr. Edward Jenner, (THE MAN WHO SAVED THE WORLD FROM SMALLPOX) is nothing less than awesome------and must surely represent this author's "MAGNUS OPUS" in which the reader can share. A modern day reader with a non-scientific or medical background learns of the unspeakable ravages the smallpox malady had on individuals, nations, and even great tides in history.
The background, hardships, and accomplishments of Dr. Edward Jenner, a British physician two centuries ago, are unfolded by Dr.George Smith, a current U.S. physician, in the format of an after dinner fireside chat at an old, royalistic mansion in rural England on the occasion of the 180th anniversary of Dr. Jenner's death. The participants are four couples, each of whom has extensive and varying scientific/medical backgrounds, and each is well versed with Dr. Jenner's quest, hardships and obstacles, as well as his achievements that led to the elimination of the smallpox horrors from this planet.
As presented in the fireside chat format, the reader becomes a listener in a VERY EDUCATIONAL AND CAPTIVATING TALE.
