    A shocking expose of the reckless proliferation of bioweapon research and development facilities across the U.S. - and the threat this poses to everyday Americans. Battling a new generation of corporate giants and uncovering threats right in our own backyard, Kenneth King’s Germs Gone Wild reveals the massive expansion of America’s biodefense research labs and the culture of deception surrounding hundreds of facilities that have opened since 9/11.

    Would you try another book from Kenneth King and/or Brian Troxell?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Kenneth King again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Brian Troxell’s performance?

    The only thing good was how he expressed the anger of the author.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    An angry author, but angry at what or who. Are we supposed to believe that since the beginning of germ research that there hasn't been a Democratic President? Or maybe all germ research was halted while a Democrat was President? I would recommend the author listens to "Practicing Mindfulness" maybe he could work out his anger toward Republicans.

  • The Science of Fear: Why We Fear the Things We Should Not - and Put Ourselves in Great Danger

    From terror attacks to the War on Terror, bursting real-estate bubbles to crystal meth epidemics, sexual predators to poisonous toys from China, our list of fears seems to be exploding. And yet, we are the safest and healthiest humans in history. Irrational fear is running amok, and often with tragic results. In the months after 9/11, when people decided to drive instead of fly - believing they were avoiding risk - road deaths rose by 1,595. Those lives were lost to fear.

    Overall

    Be afraid Daniel Gardner writes another book. Very little useful information. He should re-publish the book under the title "Why I Hate George Bush".
