    "Enjoyed it so much I bought the book!"
    Overall

    Jam packed full of mind blowing stuff! I enjoyed it so much that I went out to get the hard copy for review, and even bought one for my brother to read. He covers everything from bio-engineered crops, eugenics, forensics, how-it-does and why-it-does. Easy to follow, even if you are new to the subject. If you are the least bit interested in the subject, I would highly recomend it!

    In 1989, a shipment of 100 monkeys arrived at a biomedical supply company in Reston, Virginia. There, in a small complex across from a McDonald's and a playground, the animals began to get sick. Their intestines turned to the consistency of gumbo. One by one they died a grisly and horrible death. Too late, the custodians realized the culprit was Ebola, one of the deadliest of all known viruses. The Hot Zone reads like the finest fiction but is actually a true story.

    Overall

    This is one of the all time best books I have ever lisened to, and I listen to a lot! Seriously, it scared the hell out of me. If your not careful, it will have you washing your hands and thinking about what you are touching & breathing - the way a good horror story gets you glancing over your shoulder! And to make it worse, it's a true story!!! Aaaaagh!
