    Public Health Advocacy In Troubled Times

    Doctor Gary Null is one of the few singularly brave advocates for our public health in an age where denial and 'what-me-worry?' idiocy is an alarmingly growing trend where our safety is concerned. I found this book comprehensive, authoritative and practical. My family and I sleep a lot better, and the anxiety of my daily commute via public transportation has been greatly lessened, since we have prepared for the worst case scenario, thanks to Doctor Null, and this publication.
