Read this gripping, timely book about the transmission of deadly viruses from animal to human populations, and how we can fight the current Covid-19 pandemic. As globalization spreads and as we destroy the ancient ecosystems, we encounter strange and dangerous infections that originate in animals but that can be transmitted to humans. Diseases that were contained are being set free and the results are potentially catastrophic. In a journey that takes him from southern China to the Congo, from Bangladesh to Australia, David Quammen tracks these infections to their source, and asks what we can do to prevent some new pandemic spreading across the face of the earth. As we continue to feel the global impact of Covid-19, discover the book that predicted this viral disaster and the science that could stop the next one in its tracks. 'A tremendous book...this gives you all you need to know and all you should know' Sunday Times 'Chilling... [A] brilliant, devastating book' Daily Mail 'A frightening and fascinating masterpiece of science reporting that reads like a detective story' Walter Isaacson

La nostra recensione

Mr Quammen is not just among our best science writers but among our best writers, period...that he hasn't won a non-fiction National Book Award or Pulitzer Prize is an embarrassment... Quammen is a patient explainer and a winning observer, he has a novelistic flair for describing his fellow humans... Quammen, combining physical and intellectual adventure, wraps his canny explorations into powerful moral witness * New York Times * A tremendous book...this gives you all you need to know and all you should know. Quammen's research and the analysis make sensationalism unnecessary * Sunday Times * Quammen has a wide range of knowledge, an agile pen, and a generous heart * New York Times Book Review * Quammen's book is compelling and shows that there are many candidates out there vying to be the next pandemic * British Journal of General Practice * A frightening and fascinating masterpiece of science reporting that reads like a detective story
