    Good Read

    I picked up this book to read over winter break. I just completed a microbiology course last semester. This book is exciting and provokes your interest in epidemiology and virology. I would recommend this book to anyone with an interest in medicine.

    A uick but enjoyable read.

    I found this book difficult to put down. This book was a tantalizing combination of biological discovery and political road blocks. This book shed some light on the development of many health regulations in place today.

    great for biology students

    After completing a semester of microbiology, I was intrested in viruses. I picked up this book as as summer read. Not only was very informative about viruses usually unknown to the united states and epidemology but it was suspensful and an enjoyable story of two scientist and their lives working with these diseases. Great for anyone interested in science or disease.
