Few people would consider the story of four amazing scientists and an insect, to be a romantic history. That, however, is exactly what Dr Cyril Fox has achieved. Make no mistake; this is a serious and incredibly well-researched account of the dedication that helped to substantially reduce the death and misery to humankind represented by the twin scourges of malaria and yellow fever. We may think of research scientists spending their lives in clinical laboratories but here we have men frequently putting their own lives in danger in pursuit of the villain of the piece, the tiny but far from inconsequential mosquito. Mosquito Net is not only essential reading for medical and scientific practitioners. It is also a fascinating tale and told in a manner that renders it to be eminently readable for professional and lay readers alike.
