This was a very, very informative book. I enjoyed the historical references, although some of it did make me yawn a little (I guess history isn't really my thing)....I was really interested in the beginning but toward the ending, I felt that I couldn't read about China, malaria, Rome, bubonic plague, AIDS, Africa, and dysentery ANYMORE. I recommend this for a microbiology major or a germ aficionado.

Also, I felt that Clark kept implying that the time is ripe for an epidemic...kind of scary.
