    Salk became a cultural hero and icon for a whole generation. Now, at the fiftieth anniversary of the first national vaccination program, and as humanity is tantalizingly close to eradicating polio worldwide, comes this unforgettable chronicle. Salk's work was an unparalleled achievement, and it makes for a magnificent listen.

    Story
    What did you like best about Splendid Solution? What did you like least?

    The complete history of search for a prevention of the childhood plague was fascinating.

    The technical editing of the book was absolutely the worst I've ever experience in all the books I've listened to over the last nine years. The last word of every chapter was cut off by the announcement of the next chapter. It was startling and somewhat disconcerting.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was wonderful to hear the whole history of the Salk Vaccine. As a child, I was told how a brother's playmate contracted Polio or Infantile Paralysis and succumbed to the disease. My brother ran a high fever but recovered quickly. Now I understand what happened to both boys. And I was one of the lucky children who received the vaccine during the testing.
