MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

Main description:

A woman's innocuous cold symptoms mask a debilitating rare tick infection. A young man develops shingles then suffers blinding head pain later in life. After years of frustration, a family eradicates head lice forever. Infectious follows on from Frank Bowden's 2011 Gone Viral but deals much more with everyday infectious diseases - the flu, colds, sore throats and head lice. It also tackles topical and critical issues in modern medical practice - the emergence of antibiotic resistance, the Ebola epidemic, the Lyme Disease controversy and the causes of chronic fatigue. Praise for Gone Viral 'Witty, engaging and poignant' - Fiona Capp, the Age 'An excellent storyteller' - Leigh Dayton, the Australian 'A wonderful communicator, but also a skilled educator and visionary medical professional' - Catriona Ooi, Royal Australian College of Physicians News Listen to Frank Bowden in conversation with Richard Fidler on ABC Radio
