The Family That Couldn't Sleep: A Medical Mystery - D.T. Max I found this to be a fascinating read about the discovery of prion diseases. It highlighted some interesting people who were central to research in this area. I found the sections about the discovery and cover up of BSE/mad cow in the UK particularly interesting.This was interspersed with the sad story of the family with fatal familial insomnia, and the way they were misdiagnosed over many years.
