Product description

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

Book Description

The Viral Storm explores why modern life makes us so vulnerable to global pandemics, and what new technologies can do to prevent them.
