Pressestimmen “A stirring and personal account . . . For all her doggedness Hanna-Attisha is a goofy appealing very human narrator. . . . Hers is the book I’d recommend to those coming to the issue for the first time; the crisis becomes personalized through the stories of her patients and their parents.”—Parul Sehgal The New York Times“The Iraqi American pediatrician who helped expose the Flint water crisis lays bare the bureaucratic bunk and flat-out injustice at the heart of the environmental disgrace—revealing with the gripping intrigue of a Grisham thriller ‘the story of a government poisoning its own citizens and then lying about it.’”O: The Oprah Magazine“It’s one thing to point out a problem. It is another thing altogether to step up and work to fix it. Mona Hanna-Attisha is a true American hero.”—Erin Brockovich “A clarion call to live a life of purpose.”The Washington Post“Gripping . . . entertaining . . . Her book has power precisely because she takes the events she recounts so personally. . . . Moral outrage present on every page.”The New York Times Book Review“Personal and emotional. . . She vividly describes the effects of lead poisoning on her young patients. . . . She is at her best when recounting the detective work she undertook after a tip-off about lead levels from a friend. . . . ‛Flint will not be defined by this crisis’ vows Ms. Hanna-Attisha.”The Economist“Flint is a public health disaster. But it was Dr. Mona this caring tough pediatrician turned detective who cracked the case.”—Rachel Maddow  “Mona Hanna-Attisha’s account of that urban man-made disaster reads both as a detective story and as an exposé of government corruption. . . . Her book’s message is that we each have the power to fix things to make the world safer by opening one another’s eyes to problems. Her book reinforced my belief that the first step to becoming a citizen activist is seeing the world as it should be not as it is given to you.”The Seattle Times“Essential for all readers who care about children health and the environment. This should be required reading for public servants as an incisive cautionary tale and for pediatricians and youth advocates as a story of heroism in the ranks of people who have the capacity to make a difference.”Library Journal (starred review) “She is an unlikely hero—a pediatrician who went up against the forces responsible for poisoning an American city my hometown of Flint Michigan. Yet because of her gentle but unrelenting perseverance she brought the world’s attention to this crime. A story of race greed and a crumbling democracy What the Eyes Don’t See is a brilliantly written book—may it help save every Flint in this country.”—Michael Moore “[A] powerful firsthand account . . . Hanna-Attisha’s empathy for her patients and the people of Flint comes through as do her pride in her Iraqi roots and her persistent optimism. . . . An inspiring work.”Publishers Weekly “Told with passion and intelligence What the Eyes Don’t See is an essential text for understanding the full scope of injustice in Flint and the importance of fighting for what’s right.”Booklist (starred review) Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende Mona Hanna-Attisha MD MPH FAAP is a physician scientist and activist who has been called to testify twice before the United States Congress awarded the Freedom of Expression Courage Award by PEN America and named one of Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in the World.
