Dr. Paul Offit is the Chief of Pediatric Infectious Diseases at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, and a relentless advocate for children's health and childhood vaccination. We interviewed Dr. Offit several weeks ago here on The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, and in a continuing effort to support him with the release of his new book, we are encouraging people to buy the book via Amazon on Monday, February 21, 2011.
A frenzy of book-buying could push the title into Amazon's Hot New Release list, raising publicity about the importance and safety of vaccines.
Even if you already have a copy of the book, consider purchasing another copy and donating a book to your local public or high school, a health education teacher, or your child's pediatrician.
Hard cover: Deadly Choices: How the Anti-Vaccine Movement Threatens Us All ($17.11)
and the Kindle edition: Deadly Choices on Kindle ($9.99)
(Dr. Offit is donating all royalties from the book to the Autism Science Foundation.)
