The Evening Standard reviews The Thalidomide Catastrophe
"This is our history — it must be told in our lifetimes."
Journalist Geoff Adams-Spink writes:
“Piece by piece the authors have put together a grim jigsaw that the family owners of Grünenthal hoped would never see the light of day. … In spite of the myriad obstacles placed in the path of truth, Johnson, Stokes and Arndt have insisted on telling the compelling and gruesome story of thalidomide.”
About ‘The Thalidomide Catastrophe’
“This momentous book is the first comprehensive history of thalidomide. … It demonstrates how many thousands of victims could have been spared very late in the day if Chemie Grunenthal had taken any notice of the early alarms: … [It] carries conviction by its scientific rigour, and the clarity of the writing. Fifty years after the deaths and sufferings, the thalidomide tragedy is marked by … the odour of corruption and cover up.”
Sir Harold Evans, former editor of The Sunday Times and The Times
