Product description

Review

"A frightening and fascinating masterpiece of science reporting that reads like a detective story" (Walter Isaacson)

"Quammen has a wide range of knowledge, an agile pen, and a generous heart" (James Gorman New York Times Book Review)

"A tremendous book...this gives you all you need to know and all you should know. Quammen’s research and the analysis make sensationalism unnecessary" (Bryan Appleyard Sunday Times)

"Mr Quammen is not just among our best science writers but among our best writers, period...that he hasn’t won a non-fiction National Book Award or Pulitzer Prize is an embarrassment... Quammen is a patient explainer and a winning observer, he has a novelistic flair for describing his fellow humans... Quammen, combining physical and intellectual adventure, wraps his canny explorations into powerful moral witness" (Dwight Garner New York Times)

"One of that rare breed of science journalists who blend exploration with a talent for synthesis and storytelling... This is a timely, serious and impressive work that marks the maturation of a field of microbiology" (Nathan Wolfe Nature)

Book Description

A gripping and timely book about the transmission of highly dangerous diseases from animal to human populations.
