    Description

    This program is read by the author.

    A vital, timely text on the viruses that cause pandemics and how to face them, by the New York Times best-selling author of How Not to Die. 

    From tuberculosis to bird flu and HIV to coronavirus, these infectious diseases share a common origin story: Human interaction with animals. Otherwise known as zoonotic diseases for their passage from animals to humans, these pathogens - both pre-existing ones and those newly identified - emerge and re-emerge throughout history, sparking epidemics and pandemics that have resulted in millions of deaths around the world. 

    How did these diseases come about? And what - if anything - can we do to stop them and their fatal march into our countries, our homes, and our bodies? In How to Survive a Pandemic, Dr. Michael Greger, physician and internationally-recognized expert on public health issues, delves into the origins of some of the deadliest pathogens the world has ever seen. Tracing their evolution from the past until today, Dr. Greger spotlights emerging flu and coronaviruses as he examines where these pathogens originated, as well as the underlying conditions and significant human role that have exacerbated their lethal influence to large, and even global, levels. 

    As the world grapples with the devastating impact of the novel coronavirus 2019, or COVID-19, Dr. Greger reveals not only what we can do to protect ourselves and our loved ones during a pandemic, but also what human society must rectify to reduce the likelihood of even worse catastrophes in the future.

    This book change the way I think about the future

    Once again, I Dr. Greger provides us a extremely well researched and thoroughly referenced scientific book. The topic, I was convinced, is of critical importance. But the book is not about what you might think it is. He does not spend much time on ways to boost your immune system through nutrition and barely mentions the whole food plant-based diet or other lifestyle behaviors in great detail.

    Mostly, this book is about avian influenza and the huge risk that it confers on our future. He makes it very convincing argument that a deadly flu virus will eventually arise as our next pandemic, and that we can expect pandemics to arise much more frequently due to the intensification of factory animal farming.

    The book is repetitious. I believe I heard certain points made about a dozen times. I got the sense that it was not edited as thoroughly as it might’ve been because of the haste to get it published in a very short period of time.

    Nonetheless, because of the importance of the topic and the novelty of the information, for me, I find this book to be indispensable.

    Too repetitive and content doesn’t reflect the title

    He states the facts (a bit too repetitively) but puts too much emphasis on how scared you should be to eat animal products. Even as someone concerned about animal rights and who is mostly vegetarian, eating only dairy and eggs, I think he exaggerates. He does have interesting things to say about viruses that are more lethal than COVID-19 and we should take that as a warning to be prepared for something far worse. But his main argument is that the key to surviving an epidemic is to avoid one in the first place by shutting down wet animal markets and the vast global animal agricultural industry. In my case, he was preaching to the converted. His emphasis is on avoidance, not survival. So if you’re expecting a how-to book on how to survive a pandemic, look elsewhere.

    Covid-19 is just a warmup

    The next pandemic, which could dwarf Covid-19 in both its infection rate and mortality rate, is just a few short evolutionary steps from becoming a reality, and we humans are to blame. But there is an answer. It’s quite simple, really. Simple, that is, but not easy.

    More politics less science!

    I was looking for "How" to survive a pandemic but disappointed. I cannot listen beyond the first 30 minutes.

    Highly entertaining and informative

    From the prologue: Where do new infectious diseases come from? All human viral infections are believed to originate in animals.
    A really fantastic listen.

    Please make him stop talking

    A very annoying narrator. His odd sing-songy delivery made it hard to follow. He has interesting historical info, but making it sound like a bad infomercial, detracts immensely. His pace would slow down and speed up making it hard to understand. Please hire a professional narrator with a nice voice instead of a cartoon character / because this info deserves to be heard.

    Important message

    Educational and very important content. However, the title doesn't reflect the actual content; if you expect it to be all about how as an individual to avoid sickness in a pandemic, you may be disappointed. Most of the book is about the origin of novel pathogens, especially bird flu.

    Very informative

    The author presented the topic with researched background information. The history part of the book made glad to have not lived in the 1920s.

    Horrible narration

    The content was worthwhile. The narration was so poor that I couldn’t stick with it. It’s too bad because I would have liked to finish it. It was so awful to listen to that I returned it.
