I absolutely love this book

What we're surviving currently isn't altogether obscure and we can gain from an audit of past pandemics in a truly listenable introduction. This will leave you with the inquiry "for what reason would we say we were so ill-equipped?

Awesome basic essential information.


I am completely satisfied. It is a basic history of pandemics, starting with a couple of pages of brief helpful definitions. There are chapters on the bubonic plague, Russian and Spanish flu, cholera, smallpox, the swine flu, Ebola, and more.

Interesting Topic, poor retelling

Pandemics are an interesting and current topic. The author does have a lot of information to tell. However, you can tell by the telling of the story that there is difficulty in mastering the skill of narration. He will use scientific data and medical terms and then refer to women as ladies, children as kids. Expressions like "bit the dust" are used frequently as saying people died. This is a not entirely proper use of a colloquium. There is a lot of repetition in the books. The actual narration was poor. It often sounded like the narrator got the end of a line on a page and paused breaking up a phrase. While I was intrigued by the topic, I almost regretted buying this book.

This audiobook is really helpful to know


If you’ve been hearing a lot about the Spanish flu lately, wondered how it compares with the current pandemic, how it infected people, the numbers, its spread, what steps people took to deal with it. This audiobook is really helpful to know about Spanish Flu Pandemic.

This book is very detailed

This informative on pandemics and how they relate to cultural reformation, social distancing and disease containment should reassure everyone that the Corona virus is nothing new. Surely, with the scientific accomplishments that we have achieved so far we can overcome the Corona virus.

It is a very good book and helpful book.

It is heartbreaking to be reminded that throughout history people have blamed certain religious beliefs, sexual orientations, political beliefs, etc. for the spread of disease rather than accepting a much more universal and scientific root. It is even more frustrating that this continues today.

It is what you need to know to survive this or any pandemic because it gives the history of various pandemics, and listens like a novel but it’s all true. You will remain riveted from page one to the end and you will have learned a lot in the process

This book was incredible. I learned about the flu virus, past pandemics, what we've done to combat the flu and what we still need to learn. Also deeply understand the disease and its parallels with the current world pandemic.

I'm satisfied to listen to this audible

This succeeds in dramatically describing the unfolding of what is considered the worst pandemic in human history. The 1918 influenza virus went through the world like a giant scythe killing millions in a matter of weeks. That this coronavirus pandemic is not presently as lethal as 1918 is a hollow reassurance.

This audio book has been super helpful for me

I would have liked more information concerning specifics of actual pandemics, the social and economic disruptions, the barriers to impeding the spread of infections, and details concerning the steps between an epidemic becoming pandemic. I enjoyed this and recognize what a huge amount of information is included.

I like this audiobook so much

Knowledge is the best weapon to contain pandemics. Now that the new virus covid is among us,we can use what we have learned to protect ourselves and others to mitigate some of the effects- good hygiene,hand washing, social distancing, self quarantining,etc. Vaccines will be produced but in the meantime take care. This provides the understanding of what to do.
