Stanley Prusiner, MD, ANA member and President-elect, recently published the remarkable book, Madness and Memory: The Discovery of Prions--A New Biological Principle of Disease (Yale University Press). The volume recounts Dr. Prusiner's ground-breaking discovery that garnered him the Nobel Prize in 1997. It covers in wonderful detail not only the conceptual breakthroughs that underlie the discovery, but also the multiple frustrations and challenges he faced in pursuing these investigations. 


The book has received numerous favorable reviews. The New York Times said, "Once disparaged, his scientific work is now hailed as visionary, and his memoir takes the reader on a leisurely and immensely readable victory lap from then to now...perhaps not since James D. Watson's 1968 memoir The Double Helix has the down and dirty business of world-class science been given such an airing." 

Madness and Memory is a terrific read.  It is ANA's pleasure to recommend it for the top of your summer reading list.
