"A remarkably well-written and engaging book. Yasmin brings out Lange's special personality and accomplishments while covering complex medical issues and situations understandably for the lay reader. Inspiring."

"The Impatient Dr. Lange is two things. It is first of all a thrilling history of the investigation of one of the greatest plagues in human history, written by a scientist who intimately understands the challenge that the HIV epidemic posed to humanity. It is also a eulogy for a great scientist, written by his younger protégé. These two strands combine for wonderful reading."

"Seema Yasmin does an excellent job of portraying Dr. Lange's character, as well as significant milestones in the history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic and the discovery of new drugs and technologies."

"More than just a biography, The Impatient Dr. Lange is a must-read for medical students and history buffs; it is also a sociopolitical overview of Europe and Africa in the 1980s and 1990s. The heartbreaking stories of HIV and AIDS patients across the globe, paired with Lange’s relentless drive, propel the narrative forward. Clear, concise, and thoroughly researched, this book shows how one person with ambition, compassion, hope, and the right resources can accomplish extraordinary things."


"Yasmin offers a vivid sense of Lange's complexity, his faults and virtues, and the people and the causes he loved... Readers interested in the history of HIV and AIDS or biographies of persons who played a significant role in global health will find this a fascinating read."
