This is a broad overview of some of the cases covered by the Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS). It reads like a bulked up chronology line, so rather than follow the mystery of Legionnaire's Disease to completion in one section, you get get the fractured chunks of it in chronological order. You also don't get a good feel for the various EIS agents. If you're looking for basic information, this book is fine, but if you want something more comprehensive and personal I suggest one of the memoirs of the agents in question.
