Matt Richtel will speak about and sign his new book, An Elegant Defense: The Extraordinary New Science of the Immune System: A Tale in Four Lives, on Friday, August 2nd at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
The immune system is our body’s essential defense network, a guardian vigilantly fighting illness, healing wounds, and keeping us alive. For all its astonishing complexity, however, the immune system can be easily compromised by fatigue, stress, toxins, age, and even by excessive hygiene. An Elegant Defense uniquely entwines intimate stories with science’s centuries-long quest to unlock the mysteries of sickness and health, and illuminates the immune system as never before.
