Epidemic Ebola and the Global Scramble to Prevent the Next Killer Outbreak

Review :

An engrossing, clear, and comprehensive overview of the 2013-2015 Ebola epidemic of West Africa. Reid Wilson interviews dozens of the key actors that played major roles during the response to the epidemic. The timeline of the epidemic is clearly laid out and Wilson corroborates what each group does with accounts from other players.

The narrative is riveting, the arc of the epidemic is comprehensive, and language is clearly understood with no unnecessary jargon. The audiobook was narrated by Jonathan Yen, who does an admirable job. I will likely reread the hard copy to go over it more thoroughly.

I highly recommend this book for anyone that is seeking a clear and comprehensive understanding of what happened during the 2013-2015 Ebola epidemic and the global response that it eventually triggered.
