this one is both interesting and exciting. the two authors spent time in africa and other parts of the world investigating disease outbreaks and treating patients. they investigated outbreaks of very dangerous diseases, including ebola in environments with terrible transportation and no or little medical facilities.
It is very interesting to read biographies by those involved in the discovery of the modern plagues, where I would venture to say that Ebola is now fairly well known, although this may not have been the case a few years back. I enjoyed reading the first hand accounts of those that have been there and done that, so to say, trying to track down the pathogen behind the outbreaks you only read about in the newspapers.
