Read full description of the books:
I've read a couple of books about germs recently and found this one to be a nice addition. While the others were telling a particular story about a specific germ or lab, this book was more of a comprehensive overview of all the super nasty germs out there as well as the struggle to discover cures and vaccines for them. As with the others it's full of some pretty scary stuff.
This book was written by two brothers who both have master of science degrees in microbiology and really know their germs. They have both also been teachers and I think this shows in their writing. It reads like a textbook at times and becomes a little tedious and overly scientific for my tastes. It actual put me to slept a few times even though I am very interested in the subject.
Tediousness aside this is a good book and I recommend it for anyone looking for an overview of the worst germs out there. I would, however, point out that this book is over ten years old so some of it is a little outdated, especially parts of the last chapter dealing with bioterrorism. Other than that, really informative book.
