Synopsis

'Thrilling... Reads like the best kind of adventure story' STEPHEN FRY



Our immune system is one of the great marvels of nature - and it holds the key to human health.



Here, Professor Daniel Davis charts the groundbreaking scientific quest to understand how it fights disease and enables the body to heal itself. He explains how it is affected by stress, sleep, age and our state of mind, and reveals how all of this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary approach to medicine and well-being.



The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and of the mysteries that remain, and of lives sacrificed and saved.



SHORTLISTED FOR THE ROYAL SOCIETY SCIENCE BOOK PRIZE



'Wonderful... recounts in exceptionally clear and sympathetic prose how research into the immune system has resulted in a health revolution' HENRY MARSH



'Thoroughly absorbing... Davis is a wonderful storyteller' BILL BRYSON
