From the Back Cover:

"Written and assembled by the leading experts in the field - this book does the essential work of updating our knowledge about biological weapons and documenting the lessons learned from the anthrax attacks of October 2001. It's a must-read for any health professional who may be called upon to respond to a future bioterrorist attack."

Bill Frist, MD, Senator State of Tennessee

"Improving bioterrorism preparedness and response capabilities must be among our highest priorities. This book, written by some of the foremost experts on this topic, offers an extraordinary compilation of cutting-edge information and analysis. As our nation struggles to cope with this evolving threat, this volume represents an essential resource for medical and public health communities - the new first responders in a bioterrorist event."

Sam Nunn, Co-Chairman Nuclear Threat Initiative and former United States Senator

"Drs Henderson, Inglesby, and O'Toole have given medical and public health professionals a concise, clinical guide to the diagnosis, treatment, and containment of biological agents with the potential for use by terrorists. Their work is timely and valuable, and it may help save lives."

Frank Keating, Governor State of Oklahoma

"This remarkably current book should be a required information source for all clinicians, public health workers, and emergency response personnel. The nation's leaders, in our response to bioterrorism, have assembled a team of experts to provide in-depth reports for the 6 agents deemed most likely to be used against us. It is crisply written, factual, definitive, and well referenced."

Gerald L. Mandell, MD, MACP, Professor of Medicine Owen R. Ceatham, Professor of the Sciences University of Virginia Health System

"This book by renowned experts should do much to help the medical and public health professions be alert to the danger and ready to respond. Should an act of bioterrorism occur, prompt detection and rapid containment will depend on their vigilance and knowledge. The book is warmly welcomed as a contribution to strengthened global health security against an unthinkable yet no longer unimaginable threat."

David L. Keymann, MD, Executive Director Communicable Diseases World Health Organization
