A wonderful book about the beginning of vaccination by the very man himself, Edward Jenner. Reading the actual publication that had led to a world saved from small-pox and many other diseases gives one the feeling of awe and inspiration of what a man and his observation of nature can provide. Jenner's 23 case studies in his 75 page report is a sound reminder of the importance of doing Science the rigorous way.
