    Praise for Cure Unknown

    "A thoroughly researched and well-written account of the disease's
    controversial history." --Jane Brody, New York Times

    "Pam Weintraub, veteran science writer, weaves personal narrative with
    hard-hitting investigative journalism to bring the underground epidemic
    of Lyme and other tick-borne diseases up from under the radar." -Rebecca
    Wells, author of Ya-Yas in Bloom and Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya
    Sisterhood.

    "In CURE UNKNOWN, Pamela Weintraub has produced both the definitive book
    about Lyme disease and associated disorders and a survivor's account of
    a grueling medical odyssey...This is an important and unforgettable
    book, destined to make a lasting contribution to the field of
    investigative health journalism." -Kaja Perina, editor in chief of
    Psychology Today

    "I sometimes wonder if the only investigative writers who will possess
    the necessary temerity to remove the white gloves and tackle these
    putative experts to the ground will be those, like Weintraub and the
    late Randy Shilts, whose personal experience demands that they follow
    the rocky trail that leads to the truth." -Hillary Johnson, author of
    Osler's Web: Inside the Labyrinth of the Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Epidemic

    "Millions suffering from symptoms of a mysterious disease need suffer
    confusion and loss no longer. If you want to know the real story behind
    Lyme disease and how to find your way back to health, read this book."
    -Mark Hyman, MD, author of the New York Times bestseller, UltraMetabolism.

    "Pamela Weintraub's book is compelling, clear and troubling." -Patti
    Adcroft, editorial director of Discover magazine

    "Science journalism at its best." --Amiram Katz, MD, Clinical Faculty,
    Neurology Department, Yale School of Medicine
