Reviews

From the reviews:

"The book is well timed, and it places perceived and real viral threats in perspective. … the book will be a valuable contribution to education and preparedness. … This book will be a useful and relatively current resource not only for experts and researchers in public health and infectious diseases but also for veterinary and medical professionals as well as graduate students." (Jonathan L. Heeney, New England Journal of Medicine, August, 2007)
