COVID book club

In case the COVID epidemic has piqued your interest in the wild world of viruses, there are some wonderful books that manage to pack scientific detail about viruses, emerging pathogens, and the threat of global pandemics into vivid narratives aimed for a lay audience. Here are 5 non-fiction books I recommend. Excellent for bored teenagers.

  1. Spillover, David Quammen (2012)

2. The Great Influenza, John Barry (2005)

3. The Viral Storm: the dawn of a new pandemic age, Nathan Wolfe (2012)

4. The Coming Plague: Newly Emerging Diseases in a World Out of Balance, Laurie Garrett (1995)

5. The Planet of Viruses, Carl Zimmer (2015)
