overlong essay

Mr. Regis clearly has a perspective -- that virus are not as much a threat to public safety as the media has hyped them to be, and that the CDC is a overblown bureaucracy. Great, but it's not a book -- it's an essay. There is no interesting scientific information on Viruses -- it feels like a compilation of unedited notes left over from magazine articles. The reader does terrible 'accent voices' for the quotes -- this is annoying.
