This book is a story-friendly retelling of many of Ali's more interesting case studies, while working at the CDC. This guy really encountered some mean little viruses, and the sheer volume of historical science (scientific history?) alone is worth the price of the book. I found Ali's storytelling style to be engaging and quite entertaining. He rarely goes off on tangents, and knows that the reader is interested in the "sizzle" of these afflictions, and not just cold, hard data.
Overall, if you're interested in the history of killer germs, or the potential for said germs to become "viral" and potentially wipe out a sizable section of the population, then this book is for you!
Narrator is great.

scary but without trying.
stories told matter-of-factly about many ways to die.
Dr.Kahn did a wonderful job weaving together the backstories of so many health scares i remember.
