About «The Little Book of Pandemics »
Warning to chronic germophobes: The Little Book of Pandemics may cause severe insomnia. With this handy little book, medical journalist Peter Moore taps our deep-seated fascination with infectious danger. Displaying almost eerie forensic precision, he charts dozens of ghastly plagues from outbreak and first symptoms to final mass resting places. He even offers sometimes-chilling assessments of the potential threat to civilization of each disease.
