4.0 out of 5 stars Very readable, but you may wish to miss out some of the first few chapters, 30 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Viruses, Plagues, and History: Past, Present and Future (Kindle Edition)
This is a good read if you are interested in viruses. The early chapters are a bit technical in describing how viruses work and how the body defends (or otherwise) itself. But this can be skimmed if you are not scientific as there are some good summary paragraphs in the text.

The descriptions of each virus and how it affects and has affected human and non human life and history are top class.

For example, how smallpox has been indicated in human life since antiquity, through the affect on American Civil war to modern terror worries. How Lincoln survived the disease, Edward Jenner and Cowpox, variolation and vaccination, and anti viral treatment example, eradication of the disease and so on. I am glad to say that these chapters are not too detailed nor too scientific (I am an ex-scientist) and provide marvellous high level reading.

Recommended if you take an interest in how viruses work, how we defend ourselves and how they have affected the world.
