    1. Very interesting account of how difficult it can be to conduct research, although lighter on science than I wish. I also found it disquieting the way he minimized the crimes of one of the scientists widely cited in prion research, Gajdusek. It's a little hard to be entirely interested in an author's personal tribulations when they excuse a child molester.

    2. I read this book when I was going through my phase of fascination with mad cow disease and its associated prion diseases. I didn't, and still don't understand half of the science that goes on, but am both horrified and intrigued by the different forms and their impact on humans (perhaps similar to the way that people are fascinated by zombies).

    3. Really, I dont know exactly what to say about this book, other then you learn a whole helluva a lot about different cultures and just how long something can live in the ground waiting for a host body.

    4. I RLY ENJOYED THE PRION DISEASE/CANNIBALISM TRIFECTA OF THE FAMILY THAT COULDN'T SLEEP, SAVAGE HARVEST, AND THE TREMBLING MOUNTAIN.
