An excellent in depth look at the 1918 flu outbreak as well as the Swine flu in the 1970's and other flu outbreaks.

Some frightening stories about flu research. At one time men in prisons were offered time off their sentences in exchange for accepting the flu virus as it was being researched in how it was passed from human to human.

Kolata starts so many sentences with "And", which I find disruptive, that I closed the book after reading several pages.
