Bioterrorism expert Leonard Cole has written the definitive account of the Anthrax attacks. Cole is the only person outside law enforcement to have interviewed every one of the surviving inhalation-anthrax victims, along with the relatives, friends, and associates of those who died, as well as the public health officials, scientists, researchers, hospital workers, and treating physicians.
Fast paced and riveting, this minute-by-minute chronicle of the anthrax attacks recounts more than a history of recent current events, it uncovers the untold and perhaps even more important story of how scientists, doctors, and researchers perform life-saving work under intense pressure and public scrutiny.
Updated with new information about Ivins and a series of upcoming Congressional hearings into the FBI’s conduct in this case, The Anthrax Letters amply demonstrates how vulnerable America was in 2001 and whether we are better prepared now for a bioterror attack.

It’s okay, I guess…
Would you consider the audio edition of The Anthrax Letters to be better than the print version?
This book is published in 2003, meaning that you don’t really get to know what happened as the investigation continued for years after. The main focus of the book lies on facts; an chronological recount of the events that followed anthrax attacks. It’s very thorough on the medical side of what happened and equally shallow on the FBI investigation.

Phoning it in
The story and science is pretty fascinating and takes you on a bit of a ride. However, after four or five chapters the narrator clearly starts just reading words, with a staccato 'not thinking about what he's reading' sound, and the performance becomes quite difficult to listen to. Almost made me stop listening.
