Excellent read right up until the end,
This review is from: The Ghost Map: A Street, an Epidemic and the Hidden Power of Urban Networks. (Paperback)
The author told this tale of the first epidemiological study, and how it put an end to cholera in London, with such mastery of language and pacing. But then the last chapter was cobbled together by musing on the future, ruminating about potential threats to health, and making tenuous connections to John Snow's work. Still well worth reading, but the ending will ensure that it becomes dated rapidly.
