The Black Death. Yellow Fever. Smallpox. History is full of gruesome pandemics, and surviving those pandemics has shaped our society and way of life. Every person today is alive because of an ancestor who survived--and surviving our current and future pandemics, like SARS, AIDS, bird flu or a new and unknown disease, will determine our future. Pandemic Survival presents in-depth information about past and current illnesses; the evolution of medicine and its pioneers; cures and treatments; strange rituals and superstitions; and what we're doing to prevent future pandemics. Full of delightfully gross details about symptoms and fascinating facts about bizarre superstitious behaviors, Pandemic Survival is sure to interest even the most squeamish of readers.

Easy to read authority on disease and infection and pandemics throughout history. Though written in 2013, this book shows us, in hindsight, where we have gone wrong with the novel Coronavirus (which is just a different strain from the SARS virus). A great handbook for anyone who wants to know the facts, and the facts from way back tell us that cleanliness is the best answer to disease prevention.
