Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Before Bill Gates became an expert on climate science, he was known as one of the few who studied pandemics—how they start, how they spread, how they can be controlled. He warned us years ago in a now-famous TED Talk of their arrival in our future. The future, of course, is now, and now is when we have to plan against a next one.

How to Prevent the Next Pandemic is a clear and upbeat plan of what every country, every government leader and every individual can do in order to help prevent another pandemic, grounded in Bill's firsthand experience with the Gates Foundation's commitment to fighting COVID-19.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Bad narration

Books seems great, but had to stop at 2nd chapter due to terribly irritating and condescending narration. Would be great if this got re-recorded…

Shockingly bad narration

For a book with so many great insights, it is let down by how the condescending the narration is. Bill, if you are reading this, find another narrator and get this rerecorded. It was such a struggle to finish this audiobook

Horrific narration

I literally couldn’t continue listening to this book. The narration is so intensely over animated that it’s distracting, embarrassing and off putting in equal measure.

Good, but…

Just very disappointed that Bill only read about 5% of the book. The content was great, the rest of the narration … not so much. Hard to recommend.
