I'm interested in recommendations for readable, general-audience books on
epidemiology and infectious disease, especially the effects of microbial
diseases on human society.  Zinsser's _Rats, Lice and History_ made a big
impact on me when I read it 30+ years ago, and had a significant effect on
my decision to go into microbiology.  I'm looking for other books of this
type that would appeal to college students.  Any suggestions?
