The threat of a global pandemic is greater than we have ever imagined. In this profound and alarming book, award-winning biologist Nathan Wolfe - known as 'the Indiana Jones of virus hunters' for his work in jungles and rain forests across the world - examines how viruses like HIV, swine flu, and bird flu have almost wiped us out in the past - and may do so in the future. 
 
The Viral Storm explores why modern life makes us so vulnerable to global pandemics, and what new technologies can do to prevent them. Wolfe's provocative vision may leave you feeling distinctly uncomfortable - but it will reveal exactly what it is we are up against.
