Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

One of the world's foremost virus hunters (Financial Times), Stanford University biologist Nathan Wolfe reveals the origins of the world's most deadly diseases and how we can combat and stop contagions.

A mix of biology, history, medicine, and first-hand experience that] is potent and irresistible,* The Viral Storm: The Dawn of a New Pandemic Age shares information Wolfe uncovered on his groundbreaking and dangerous research missions in the jungles of Africa and the rain forests of Borneo to provide an in-depth exploration of how lethal viruses evolved alongside human beings; how illnesses like HIV, swine flu, and bird flu almost wiped us out in the past; and why modern life has made our species vulnerable to the threat of a global pandemic.

In a world where each new outbreak seems worse than the one before, Wolfe points the way forward, as new technologies are brought to bear in the most remote areas of the world to neutralize these viruses and even harness their power for the good of humanity. His provocative vision of the future will change the way we think about viruses, and perhaps remove a potential threat to humanity's survival.

An astonishingly lucid book on an important topic. Deeply researched, yet effortlessly recounted.--*Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Emperor of All Maladies
