    Hate to be the voice of dissent, but I just did not care for this book much. I was really hoping for some facts and figures to help me make decisions about vaccinating my child, but instead, I got vague reassurances with out-of-context numbers. I really felt like the author was "talking down" to the reader and making assumptions that I couldn't think for myself. It was not all bad, though. The section about the different vaccines had some interesting information. I would not, however, recommend Hate to be the voice of dissent, but I just did not care for this book much.

    I read this one alongside the infamous Dr. Sears book to help me make some vaccination decisions after one of our kids was diagnosed with an allergy to two common vaccine ingredients. The chapters are well-written and coincide nicely with the way Dr. Sears presents his information, making it easy to compare the two perspectives. I particularly enjoyed learning more about the development of each vaccine, including WHY those questionable ingredients are present and why they aren't so easy to "just I read this one alongside the infamous Dr. Sears book to help me make some vaccination decisions after one of our kids was diagnosed with an allergy to two common vaccine ingredients.

I particularly enjoyed learning more about the development of each vaccine, including WHY those questionable ingredients are present and why they aren't so easy to "just take out." He also dabbled a bit in explaining the why behind the CDC recommended vaccine schedule and why it matters if you deviate from it (something I'll admit I hadn't given too much to before). I do wish he'd gone further into this topic since understanding why rather than hearing "just trust us" is key for me. The downside for me was his occasional personal stories from families whose children had been affected by vaccine-preventable diseases. This felt like emotional manipulation and fear-mongering in a book where I was really hoping for straight facts. It's so unhelpful for parents trying to make wise decisions when both sides are engaged in using scare tactics to try to win you over.
