Product description

Review

What an enthralling tale of toil, tenacity and triumph this is. The authors' intelligence, idealism and sheer, bloody-minded grit shine through. The world needs all the Sarah Gilberts and Catherine Greens it can get. Just brilliant. -- Rachel Clarke

This is
one of the most epic and pioneering moments in human history, comparable to the race to put a man on the moon, the discovery of DNA, or the first ascent of Everest. The Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine is a triumph and its creators are life savers. Science is the exit strategy, as long as we make that science equitably available to the world - as all the incredible people behind the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine always intended - truly the "People's Vaccine". -- Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust

[Sarah Gilbert] has been the adult in the room and the accidental leadership figure the moment demands, embodying the competence, command of the detail, vision and, crucially, hope, that people have needed to see. ―
New Statesman

This Oxford-Astrazeneca vaccine has provided the single best piece of news from the pandemic so far, allowing us to accelerate our vaccine programme, which we know will save lives and provides the long-term solution to this pandemic. -- Matt Hancock, Health Secretary ― The Times --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
