I have recently completed this book and I enjoyed it. I was already pro-vaccination before reading and this book gave me better explanations and arguments to use in discussions with other people. As the book says, due to confirmation bias it's almost impossible to change someone's opinion once it's set about things, but I would hope that anti-vaxxers would at least try this book so that they too could be better informed.

A good book for any parent, or anyone, wondering if there is any basis to the controversy over vaccines (Spoiler - there isn't). It clearly lays out the very seriuos risks of not vaccinating your child against the much less serious risks of the vaccine itself, and provides clear explanations of why the many anti-vaccination arguments are wrong and even dangerous.
