Not really what I expected,
This review is from: The Viral Storm: The Dawn of a New Pandemic Age (Hardcover)
More of a Nathan Wolfe Autobiography / Primate Evolution book than anything else. Not to say that it isn't interesting in it's own right (and Dr. Wolfe has certainly had an amazing career), but this is far from what I expected based on the summaries. He also seems to focus on other infectious agents as much as viruses and more on how to monitor them than their history or pandemic potential. While reading the first 100 pages or so I was pretty sure I picked up a book about primate behavior instead of viruses. That's a bit much for a book of less than 250 pages total.
I personally didn't find it very engaging but it's not bad book by any means. Just don't be mislead by the title.

Thanks. I always love "reviews" where the review is about the book you wanted, and not the one the author wrote.
