Publisher's Summary

In this brilliant and gripping medical detective story, Richard Rhodes follows virus hunters on three continents as they track the emergence of a deadly new brain disease that first kills cannibals in New Guinea, then cattle and young people in Britain and France - and that has already been traced to food animals in the United States. In a new afterword, Rhodes reports the latest U.S. and worldwide developments of a burgeoning global threat.

A Great Listen.

I actually knew about this, had read/listened to several other books but liked this one the best because of the descriptions of the research. Not too deep, just enough to appreciate the effort. Scary too!
