Arun Majumdar, Stanford University and Founding Director of ARPA-E
Chakraborty and Shaw s book will satisfy the public thirst for an authoritative account of how destructive pandemics survive despite enormous growth in scientific understanding. Their sobering view of the challenges that remain to understand antibody action and develop effective vaccines deserves close attention.
John Deutch, Former Provost Institute Professor Emeritus, MIT
The authors provide a readily accessible introduction to viruses, a class of tiny human pathogens with surprising potential to cause transmissible, sometimes fatal, disease. They speak from a deep understanding of the viruses and the body s response to viral infections. A great book for people who want to understand why viruses are such a challenge to human life.
David Baltimore, Professor, California Institute of Technology, 1975 Nobel Prize in Medicine for work in virology
This is a wonderful book that beautifully explains, in a very easy-to-read and understandable way, the history of pandemics and how the diseases that cause them may be conquered.
Robert Langer, Institute Professor, MIT, and recipient of the US National Medal of Science and the US National Medal of Technology and Innovation
