Good quick resource on the top bad-ass viruses, bacterium, etc that plague (lol) mankind. Well written with a bit of humor. Fun read ( )

This is a slim, interesting, easy to browse basic guide to pandemic diseases throughout the world. It doesn't go very in-depth, but it has plenty of information for its size and an interested party can always do further reading on any specific illness. The author lists a lot of websites in the back for a reader to check out too. One complaint: the book had more than its share of typos. ( )
