I’m Jeremy N. Smith, author of Epic Measures (HarperCollins, 2015), the true story of a 20-year, 500-scientist, $100-million moonshot attempt to track and quantify every illness, injury, and death for everyone on Earth: the biggest of Big Data ever.

Bill Gates says “Epic Measures is a fantastic read.” Kirkus Reviews calls it “Fascinating.” E. O. Wilson calls the book “Inspiring.” Paul Farmer says that it “reads like a novel and is better than any textbook or survey of this planet’s health.”

I have written for The Atlantic, Discover, and the New York Times, among many other publications. My first book, Growing a Garden City (The Urban Garden in paperback), was one of Booklist’s top 10 books on the environment for 2011.
