I really enjoyed looking at this aspect of medical detection. I'm so used to watching the CSI type shows that it was a welcome change to follow the trail of these "medical detectives" and how they collaborated to find the cause of illnesses. My only (minor) disappointments were that she tended to unnecessarily describe the scientist's looks and personalities (I was more interested in their credentials) and that I was familiar with a number of the cases already (not the author's fault because this is a major area of interest for me).
