I went to the library today to check out what books they have on Vaccines. I got excited when I saw that according to their computer they also have David Kirby´s Evidence of Harm alongside a book by Paul Ofit and another mainstream one. It said it was in so I went to search but can´t find it! I am so dissapointed. They have no idea where it is at. It´s been put on reserve for me should it be found. I´m sad, I´ve never read anything about vaccines that wasn´t online. I was really looking fwd to reading this book and I am hoping no one chose to remove it from the shelves on purpose.

It´s just really exciting to me to see a book like that on the shelves of my small, conservative town´s library.

woohoo !!! Here's to hoping you get your hands on that hot little book very soon. It's a FASCINATING book.

If you've got a PUBLIC library , you can make book requests. Either thru interlibrary loans , or asking them to purchase those books.

I asked my library if they could please order more books debating vaccines. Much to my surprise , within the next couple of months on the shelves were books by Stephanie Cave , Gary Matsumoto , David Kirby , etc.... I was pumped !

There is also the option (if you have a little extra $) of buying books you want to see at the library and donating them so they'll be available for circulation. I've gotten lots of used books in great condition for very little money on Amazon.com, so if there's any subject that you're passionate about and you want more info to be readily available about it, donating books on the topic is a good way to do so.

But do be aware that certain books have a habit of serially disappearing ad nauseum. They are usually the ones that the medical profession doesn't like. Either readers want to keep them, or certain "people" don't want them to be there....

However, many libraries just sell donated books at their library books sales.

I had to bump this up again to say that I have it setting right here on my desk! It turns out it was just in the new arrival shelves and none of us thought to look there. I am so excited, I hope I get some time tomorrow to start reading it.

Who are the people, the stories
who make up the
Evidence of Harm list?

Quote:
These brief descriptions were submitted by members when requesting to join the EOH list. There are over 400 listed here, representing one-third of the list membership. After the first few dozen or so, it begins to read like something of a memorial wall. As list host, I would add an average of five new members per day. It has become a sad daily ritual, putting individual human stories to the damage done -- But that also is an empowering reminder of the depth of this list, inspiring a recommitment to its mission: the truth.

I met David not long ago. He's done a LOT of research. He was/is a reporter and decided to do research into vaccine's and mercury.

It's a little odd that he doesn't have children but then I guess that could almost be a good thing since he won't be biased either way. He's not a doc, either. heh heh.
Just a reporter who found something fishy going on and decided to put his research skills to use.


Hugs,
Liz

I was just discussing this book with my sister, I REALLY want to read it. He is coming to speak at my city's local Autism Society chapter in April, I REALLY want to see him speak.

I don't trust the CDC farther than I can throw them. :

I bought it and read it and gave it to my dd. Now I am going to send her a link to this thread to find out whether she's had a chance to start reading it?

With the two year old, a new house, and getting ready for the second baby, she has her hands full.

But she won't vaccinate her children anyway.

That would still be a bit close to me for comfort if I was the one throwing...

Publicly, Kirby is still very pro vax - so if he did a TON of research he should know better.

I loved this book! I was able to use it to change my mom's mind about vaccinations ! It was also good to be able to read parts of it to my DH. He already supported my decision not to vax dd, but a lot of that was based on trust of my research. This really helped to solidify his resolve as well!
