On the 100th anniversary of the devastating pandemic of 1918, Jeremy Brown, a veteran ER doctor, explores the troubling, terrifying, and complex history of the flu virus, from the origins of the Great Flu that killed millions, to vexing questions such as: are we prepared for the next epidemic, should you get a flu shot, and how close are we to finding a cure?

    Earlier reviewers have already noted how terrible the language is in this recording. It just shows that if you have nothing funny or smart to say, use lots of bad words and hope nobody notices. This is the worst book I have ever gotten from Audible. I hope nobody else wastes their time, money, or minds with it.
