Matt Richtel - An Elegant Defense

 

The Extraordinary New Science of the Immune System: A Tale in Four Lives, a Science Book Talk & Signing

Matt Richtel is a Pulitzer Prize–winning New York Times reporter and bestselling nonfiction and mystery author. He will discuss and sign An Elegant Defense: The Extraordinary New Science of the Immune System: A Tale in Four Lives ($28.99 William Morrow). Magnificently reported and soulfully crafted, An Elegant Defense is an epic, first-of-its-kind exploration of the human immune system and the secrets of health. 

A terminal cancer patient rises from the grave. A medical marvel defies HIV. Two women with autoimmunity discover their own bodies have turned against them. Richtel uniquely entwines these intimate stories with science’s centuries-long quest to unlock the mysteries of sickness and health, and illuminates the immune system as never before. Drawing on his groundbreaking reporting for the New York Times and based on extensive new interviews with dozens of world-renowned scientists, An Elegant Defense is a landmark book, an investigation into the deepest riddles of survival, and a profoundly human tale.
