House on Fire: The Fight to Eradicate Smallpox - William H. Foege This book explains when and how smallpox was eradicated in Nigeria and in India, which are the 2 countries in which the author worked on the program. It is an interesting story of remarkably dedicated people that explains the science and the politics behind the campaign to eliminate smallpox. While it tells how horrible it is to have smallpox, the book’s emotional depth does not go beyond eliciting moderate engagement.
