A frightening and unforgettable narrative of cutting-edge science and spycraft, Germs shows us why advances in biology and the spread of germ weapons expertise to such countries as Iran, Iraq, and North Korea could make germs the weapon of the 21st century.
"Chilling context about a nefarious weapon." (Booklist)
"Well-researched and documented." (Amazon.com)

Should be called "Beltway Dollars"
This book is more about Washington politics than about biological warfare agents. Sadly, this is typical when establishment journalists like Judith Miller write a book about a scientific topic. We start out talking about "germs" and end up talking about Bill Clinton. The author is at times unfair, like when she does a hatchet job on the National Guard Civil Support Teams in the final chapter. Bottom line: if you are interested in biology, don't buy this book. If you're interested in Washington politics and gossip, by all means go ahead.

It's Judith Miller.
Is there anything you would change about this book?
I would have preferred a text more focused on current trends and historical facts and less focused on justifying anything any Bush Administration has ever done.
What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?
The fact that in the end, it's still an apologia for government paternalism.
