What the Eyes Don’t See

More great news . . . In addition to the NYTimes Notable Books of the 2018, What the Eyes Don’t See has been named a “Best Book of the Year” by NPR’s Science Friday. Here’s a nice round-up of praise from 2018 reviews:

“Intimate and subjective…Hanna-Attisha’s quest is full of drama and suspense…She’s a breezy, charismatic raconteur prone to feisty character descriptions…crusading figures from public health lore, turn the book into a condemnation of groupthink and a clarion call to live a life of purpose.”
— The Washington Post

“Amid the crisis that unfolded after the water switch,heroes emerged. WHAT THE EYES DON’T SEE is a thoughtful, at times blistering meditation…weaving her own family story through the book…Hanna-Attisha sheds new light.”
Chicago Tribune

“In her gripping memoir…She is disarmingly modestabout her role…Hanna-Attisha is a chatty and entertaining narrator…Her book has power precisely because she takes the events she recounts so personally…A great virtue of her book is the moral outrage present on every page.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Personal and emotional, she vividly describes the effects of lead-poisoning on her young patients…She is at her best when recounting the detective work she undertook after a tip-off about lead levels from a friend…‛Flint will not be defined by crisis,’ vows Ms Hanna-Attisha.”
The Economist

“A stirring and personal account…For all her doggedness, Hanna-Attisha is a goofy, appealing,very human narrator…Hers is the book I’d recommend to those coming to the issue for the first time; the crisis becomes personalized through the stories of her patients and their parents.”
