Editorial Reviews

Review

"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
