Very informative and detailed about emerging epidemics. A must read for everyone so they will be warned of what's to come. A must read for those who especially work in a hospital setting.

A gripping book.
Great book for understanding the nature of emerging diseases, a history of recent outbreaks, and the current threats for the near future. Fantastic descriptions, exciting accounts, and excellent commentary.
