Well written and compelling story about a battle with a mysterious illness befalling my young son. I highly recommend it!

I used the book for research as I am writing a memoir about my own experience with an E.coli infection. It was only moderately helpful as I was less interested in the emotional context and more in the technical details of the pathogen.

This book is a true story about a boy named Damion who was struck down by a mysterious microbe...E-coli. Mary, the mother and also wife of a doctor is torn between guilt for not recognizing her son's symptoms earlier and anger for the lack of regulations when it comes to testing meat. Damion was at a boy scout camp when he ate several hamburgers, which were not cooked well and a few days later he became very ill. He was hospitalized and fought a roller coaster ride of dangerous attacks on his organs by the microbe. First his kidneys almost failed, he had to be placed on dialysis, the his lungs filled with fluid and he had to be on a respirator. Meanwhile his father Marnix, who happened to be a doctor is fully involved in his son's treatment plan. Marnix becomes exhausted because of his double role as a father to Damion and as a doctor who knows the dangers that lie ahead. This book is very well written and will keep the reader on the edge of the seat. I had a hard time putting the book down. The character development is amazing, because the reader can practically see the people that are presented in the book, from doctors, to nurses to friends, even when a character has not been developed as well as another, the importance of that person will become clear in the book sooner or later. This is an amazing story of courage from a family who may lose their son to the deadly e-coli bacteria.

I have not actually read the book but intend to purchase and read it asap. I saw the forensics file tonight. It was about this case... I EAT Raw hamburger on a regular basis. I am 45 and have not been affected but now I am very concerned. The doctors interviewed said it can affect some people differently and it seems Damion was one of those people. I did not eat raw beef when we had the mad cow scare and now I thought I was ok. I cook the burgers I make on a very high heat to sear the outside to a crisp and leave the inside pretty raw. It upsets me that we, as advanced as we are can not eat beef the way it was intended. Having 3 children of my own makes me worry more as they like beef rare but NOT hamburger...thank goodness.
I feel for Daimon and his family and the show has really made me question if I should continue on this path.
Good Luck to him and his family...May you be as healthy as possible.
ps. if you disagree with eating rare or under cooked beef, I dont want to hear from you-- thanks in advance...we each have our own ways of eating food...

This book rocks my socks. It is so detailed and true to the science behnd the disease. I could not stop reading it. I don't like nonfiction books, but this one is awsome.
This was an incredible book. I read it several years ago and still recommend it to others. It is so informative, and makes you very aware of the dangers of E. coli. I am the Chairman of Health & Safety at my son's elementary school. I think part of the reason I am doing it is to educate parents on issues such as this. It touched me deeply.
