"In his new book, John Mann describes the quest within medicine for the so called 'magic bullet'. These are drugs that can destroy cancerous or infected cells while leaving normal cells unharmed. It is precisely this damage done to normal cells that produces so many of the adverse effects suffered under chemotherapy treatment, or antibiotics. Leading up to the present day, and the exciting advances being made within molecular biology, the book provides a lively, and fascinating introduction for non-scientists to one of the most exciting fields of activity within modern medicine."--BOOK JACKET.
