Product description

Review

A horror story . . . A startling and disturbing read (Scotsman)

Gets across a single point with devastating effect . . . A highly important message that, for a start, every MP and GP should be reading (Popularscience.co.uk)

If we fail to act, we are looking at an almost unthinkable scenario where antibiotics no longer work and we are cast back into the dark ages of medicine where treatable infections and injuries will kill once again (David Cameron, Prime Minister)
