Reviews

"A frighteningly fascinating reminder of just how closely connected human health and the planet's ecosystems are."--Booklist

"Andiman gives you a front row seat in the ongoing battle between man and disease . . . Gripping stories, filled with details that are in equal part delicious and disgusting, but always fascinating."--Lisa Sanders, MD, author of Every Patient Tells a Story and the New York Times Magazine "Diagnosis" column

"Dr. Andiman was at the forefront of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in America, so he knows as well as anyone the disrupting power of new viruses and their impact on human societies."--Peter Hotez, MD, PhD, Dean, National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine

"Superb storytelling interwoven with history, virology, and public health."--Outbreak News Today
