Author knows his stuff, though this is a bit old, it is still very relevant
on December 2, 2014
While I think some of the material is a bit outdated- the book is getting old and we know a lot more about ebola now- I think- it's still very relevant in many, many ways- specifically about the threat of bioterrorism and the book describes many possible scenerios.
I felt like this book was easy to read and well written. It's not too thick and it was never in any way overwhelming. I learned a lot from it.
Michael Osterholm really speaks clearly and intelligently on epidemiology and emerging biological threats. I'd love to have got a chance to study with him, so I'm grateful to get to read his books and find his lectures and speeches online. To me he makes more sense than anyone on the subject of ebola & the threat of bioterrorism..
