In 1918 an estimated forty million people died as a virus swept the world alomst overnight. Even the young and healthy were affected, leaving children orphaned and families devastated.

The author recreates the story of this gruesome epidemic with the drama of a great adventure. Delving into the history of the flu and detailing the science and the latest understanding of the disease, Kolata addresses the prospects for another outbreak and, most importantly, what can be done to prevent it.
