Joel sez:
>BUY IT, because you will want to read it more than once 
>(even though it will scare the shit out of you).

It was a fabulous book, but there was nothing at all scary about it. 
Ebola Reston is not fatal to humans, so that was not scary.  Marburg is
fatal to humans but there have been a total of ten known deaths in all of
history, starting from the first outbreak back in 1967, almost thirty
years ago.  A riveting book, but not a scary one.
