5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely interesting - A fantastic insight into the AIDS epidemic, 23 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: No Time to Lose: A Life in Pursuit of Deadly Viruses (Hardcover)
The book takes us on the journey of the life of Peter Piot and his career in public health. His open style to writing gives us a real insight into public health issues which is totally gripping and addictive. This book will serve as an inspiration for budding scientists of the future as they try to cope with the effects of inertia by governments (particularly in Africa) who did not prevent the spread of HIV.
Truly awe inspiring biography!

5.0 out of 5 stars No time to lose: read this now!, 10 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A really interesting account of Peter Piot's career, including the discovery of Ebola and the outbreak of HIV/AIDS. Absolutely loved it! If you're interested in global health, I would really recommend it! Very well written, although occasionally I did get confused as to the relative chronology of events as there was a bit of going backwards and forwards in time.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting look at the high and lows of being a scientist, 28 April 2013

This review is from: No Time to Lose: A Life in Pursuit of Deadly Viruses (Hardcover)
If you are interested in how scientists put their lives on the line to ensure that diseases that are lethal, are found, and the perils of what these scientists have to face from the ridiculous puppet governments who have no idea how their country is run by unscrupulous town/city villains, then this is the book for you, it is gripping and harrowing at the same time and explains why there are still ongoing problems in Africa and no doubt other countries around the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars I read this book a couple of years ago and ..., 31 July 2014
This review is from: No Time to Lose: A Life in Pursuit of Deadly Viruses (Hardcover)
I read this book a couple of years ago and was transfixed by Peter Piot's tales of derring do in Africa as he discovered Ebola and played a pivotal part in getting HIV treatment recognised by the medical establishment and world at large. This book is now more timely that ever with the news of the recent ebola outbreak. A fascinating (and at times terrifying) read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling read, 6 Aug 2014

Overall a pretty compelling read. Some of the UN politics lost me a little but I found this extremely readable and well written. And now, topical.

5.0 out of 5 stars An explorer's story of Aids and Ebola, 25 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is a great read for those interested in the explorers of epidemics, how they are discovered, monitored and eventually made safer. In addition the vision of travelling in countries living under regimes of oppression and war is made clear which makes for interesting personal reading

4.0 out of 5 stars A good read, 1 Mar 2013
This review is from: No Time to Lose: A Life in Pursuit of Deadly Viruses (Hardcover)
A fascinating record of the career of Peter Piot. Mostly an excellent read - the beginning is perhaps more interesting than the end.

Peter Piot focuses on the battle against Ebola and AIDS/HIV across the world, from when they first occured to treatment and perhaps an eventually cure. The story of the fight to get everyone to pull together to fight these conditions gives a great deal of hope for the future.
