Publisher's Summary

What can we learn from the past pandemics? Do you want to know more about the Spanish flu?

The pandemic had nearly similar causes to influenza; we are now fighting because of the reality that the H1N1 epidemic triggered Spanish flu from animals. The pandemic has catastrophic effects, and the overall mortality reported is greater than SARS, HIV, Black Death, and Ebola.

The Spanish Infleunza charts the history of the diseases, including the Spanish flu, and more, and how they shaped subsequent events, bringing down nations while inadvertently lifting others. The weapon against pandemic is the truth. Listen to find out why in this account of the Spanish Influenza.

With a death toll of between 50 and 100 million people, the Spanish flu of 1918-1920 was the greatest human disaster, not only of the 20th century, but possibly in all of recorded history. And yet, in our popular conception, it exists largely as a footnote to World War I.

In this book, you will learn and know the story of one of the worst pandemics of all time which can help you better understand the present and future of human diseases, why pandemics happen, how they happen, and how to prevent them.

This book covers the following topics:

  • Why Was It Called the Spanish Flu?
  • What Caused the Spanish Flu?
  • What Advice Were People Given?
  • Influenza Pandemics in Comparison
  • The Global Impact of The Largest Influenza Pandemic
  • The Famous People Who Survived
  • The Silence of the Press
  • And much more!

This was a heroic work.

This audiobook offers a well description of the work being done in the field of molecular biology to describe the ‘killer’ component of the 1918 pandemic. They have come far but, sadly, not far enough.

I am surprised how interesting I found this book.

I found it had everything to do with the 'coincidences' of history--how certain things connected to cause a larger big effect, like the discovery of the 1918 virus.

I am very happy with my purchase.

Good primer if you know nothing about virology, some good sociological information But the ending just kinda trails off leaving me to wonder if a chapter was deleted No explaining the end Worth the listen though.

This was a great book

This was a great book. It was easy to listen and gives a great overview of the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic. It also was without too much medical detail. It did give enough medical explanation to understand the dilemma and lack of any effective treatment faced by doctors and researchers of the time.

This book was interesting. I recommend this book

This book was interesting. I recommend this book to anyone who has any interest in studying this particular disease because it fills in the gaps of what you think you know about it.
