"The book reads like a detective novel, but its value will be equipping readers to protect themselves from the flu.... Bird Flu will be a fine addition to the office library as we continue to plan a national response to a possible avian influenza pandemic." --Dirk Kempthorne, U.S. Secretary of the Interior
"The book is timely, well written, and very comprehensive from any reader's perspective. It also can help people understand the urgency of a possible avian flu pandemic as it now exists, and how it could affect the health and well-being of people everywhere." --Julie Gerberding, MD, Director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
"[Greger's] contribution to research is commendable." --Colonel George W. Korch, Jr., Commander of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases
"A brilliant and captivating book, meticulously researched, beautifully and engagingly written with wit and grace, and argued with relentless logic. In addition to providing practical take-home tips for protecting oneself from the flu, the author elegantly demonstrates that the evolution of the devastating influenza virus, as well as that of numerous other zoonotic pathogens, stems directly from the proliferation of confinement agricultural systems. Every person concerned about human and animal health and welfare, self-preservation, and justice should read this book." --Bernard Rollin, PhD, University Distinguished Professor, Colorado State University

Michael Greger has achieved much in this volume. He has taken a major step toward balancing humanity's account with animals." --Kennedy F. Shortridge, Ph.D., DSc(Hon), CBiol, FIBiol, Professor Emeritus at the University of Hong Kong
