Review:

Nathan Wolfe is saving the world from near-inevitable pandemic ... a kick-ass book (Mary Roach, author of Stiff)

An excellent piece of scientific gothic, rich in descriptions of the threat we face from emerging viruses ... thought-provoking (Nature)

Part autobiography, part warning ... enthralling (BBC Focus)

Quietly terrifying ... It's hard not to feel a bit feverish at times while reading (Boston Globe)

Wolfe has an important story to tell and as a virologist at the forefront of pandemic forecasting, he is the perfect person to tell it. He explains the science clearly and never stoops to sensationalism - the evidence of our increasing vulnerability to pandemics speaks for itself (Guardian)

The world's most prominent virus hunter (New Yorker)

The plague-ridden future imagined by this authoritative, measured, yet gripping book is extremely alarming (Sunday Times)

A good place to start preparing for what might come (New Humanist)

About the Author:

Nathan Wolfe is the Lorry I.

In The Viral Storm award-winning biologist Nathan Wolfe - known as 'the Indiana Jones of virus hunters' for his work in jungles and rain forests across the world - shows the threat of a global pandemic is greater than we have ever imagined. The Viral Storm examines how viruses like HIV, swine flu, and bird flu have almost wiped us out in the past - and may do so in the future.
