This authoritative book has got everything you need to know on the world's "killer" diseases. Every week the British newspapers ramp up the risks of the latest rare disease, and it's difficult to work out which ones pose a genuine threat. Dr Baker quietly spells out the dangers of these diseases, as well as the chances of developing them. It was such a relief to get away from the blaring sensationalism of the tabloids. I'd recommend Baker's book to anyone who pushes the panic button every time they read about Bird Flu or Ebola.
