Publisher's Summary

First, we'll hear about the secrets of prehistoric supervolcanoes that once covered much of North America under two feet of volcanic ash. Also, we'll hear about new drugs that are offering better pain control, as well as powerful new analytical tools that should ensure the reliability of huge banking and communications systems. Finally, we'll take a look at the Ultimate Blood Test: 250 tests at once.
