The Beautiful Cure
  • Online via Zoom

Save event

Join the Plymouth Green and Science Book Club to discuss The Beautiful Cure by Professor Daniel Davis.

Professor Daniel Davis charts the ground-breaking scientific quest to understand how our immune system fights disease and enables the body to heal itself. He explains how it is affected by stress, sleep, age and our state of mind, and reveals how all of this knowledge is now unlocking a revolutionary approach to medicine and wellbeing. 

The Beautiful Cure tells a dramatic story of detective work and discovery, of puzzles solved and of the mysteries that remain, and of lives sacrificed and saved.

Shortlisted for the Royal Society Science Book prize.

  • “Thoroughly absorbing... Davis is a wonderful storyteller”, Bill Bryson.
  • “Thrilling... Reads like the best kind of adventure story”, Stephen Fry.
  • “Wonderful... recounts in exceptionally clear and sympathetic prose how research into the immune system has resulted in a health revolution”, Henry Marsh.

All are welcome at this meeting using the Zoom link: (no booking required). Contact Alan Ramage at for any queries.
