Not well written and poorly narrated

The topic had the potential to be interesting considering the current pandemic situation. Unfortunately, the writing style seemed somewhat elementary and the halting and robotic speaking style of the narrator made it very difficult to follow and stay engaged with the book.

Each short story contains several useful ideas

A very educational book. I learned A lot about viruses, bacteria and how they are spread. I now understand more clearly how viruses can go from animals into humans. I highly recommend this book.

Must listen for those interested in the pandemic

Instructive. Particularly, knowing history rehashes itself. A great book to have for the times we live in. Really wonderful Spanish Flu guideline for all. A fascinating and sobering revisionist history based on contemporary research.
