    The Nazis discovered it. The Allies won the war with it. It conquered diseases, changed laws, and single-handedly launched the era of antibiotics. This incredible discovery was sulfa, the first antibiotic medication. In The Demon Under the Microscope, Thomas Hager chronicles the dramatic history of the drug that shaped modern medicine.

    John Mertus says: "A pleasure in listening"
    "Infectious read"
    Overall

    I can hardily recommend to anyone interested in a fascinating historical read. I very strongly recommend to clinicians and researchers. It is principally the story of Nobel Laureate Gerhard Domagk and the effects of his research on those around him, medicine, counties, industry, war, and peace. I find it interesting that the product summary does not mention him. A well researched and presented story including the occasional semi relevant tangent. I might caution the faint of heart that there are some graphic descriptions early in the book.

    Hoye's narration was a pleasure to listen to, in spite of the occasional mispronunciations. He has an inflection in his speech that reminds me of Al Pachino which some might find problematic, but I found it to be quite smooth.
