Product description

Review

“A gripping account of one of the most devastating infectious agents on the planet...A meticulously researched, frightening report on a deadly pathogen.” (Kirkus)

“[McKenna] has written a meticulously detailed account of MRSA… hits like a sledgehammer and outlines the past, present and future of the bacteria.” (The Washington Examiner)

“During her years as a reporter covering the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Maryn McKenna grew accustomed to being called ‘Scary Disease Girl,’ the bearer of titillating tales of exotic ailments unlikely to affect most people. McKenna’s new book, Superbug, is less deliciously frightening and more just plain scary.” (Chicago Tribune)

“Where will the next major epidemic come from? According to Superbug, that epidemic is already here.” (Boing Boing) --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author
