A good companion to "The Hot Zone." This book balances a look at the development and history of the CDC as well as the efforts of its epidemiologists in combating the 1995 outbreak in Kikwit, Zaire. Regis gives you a detailed look at the workings of the CDC and diseases like Ebola, Marburg, and Lassa without playing into the fear-mongering that can easily develop in this kind of book.
