First, a horse in Brisbane falls ill: fever, swelling, bloody froth. Then thirteen others drop dead. The foreman at the stables becomes ill and the trainer dies., What is going on?As globalization spreads and as we destroy the ancient ecosystems, we encounter strange and dangerous infections that originate in animals but that can be transmitted to humans. Diseases that were contained are being set free and the results are potentially catastrophic. In a journey that takes him from southern China to the Congo, from Bangladesh to Australia, David Quammen tracks these infections to their source and asks what we can do to prevent some new pandemic spreading across the face of the earth.

Review:

"Quammen’s book is compelling and shows that there are many candidates out there vying to be the next pandemic" (Euan Lawson British Journal of General Practice)

"A frightening and fascinating masterpiece of science reporting that reads like a detective story" (Walter Isaacson)

"Quammen has a wide range of knowledge, an agile pen, and a generous heart" (James Gorman New York Times Book Review)

"A tremendous book...this gives you all you need to know and all you should know. Quammen’s research and the analysis make sensationalism unnecessary" (Bryan Appleyard Sunday Times)

"Mr Quammen is not just among our best science writers but among our best writers, period...that he hasn’t won a non-fiction National Book Award or Pulitzer Prize is an embarrassment... Quammen is a patient explainer and a winning observer, he has a novelistic flair for describing his fellow humans... Quammen, combining physical and intellectual adventure, wraps his canny explorations into powerful moral witness" (Dwight Garner New York Times)

Book Description:

A gripping and timely book about the transmission of highly dangerous diseases from animal to human populations.
