The Hot Zone by Richard Preston – An Insight into the Terrifying History of the Ebola virus

We watch the news daily about the horrifying effects of the current outbreak of the Ebola virus.  It breaks my heart to see the happenings around the world in response to the outbreak.  On the other hand, it gives me joy to see the art of science in action saving lives with new research.  My training and expertise within the medical field makes me shudder to watch and read the CNN clip today about selling the blood of survivors on the black market.  I cannot even explain to you the ramifications of this practice and what it could mean to the world.  Pat and I have both read “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston and highly recommend it to everyone to get a glimpse of the terror this virus could bring to the world.  We both HIGHLY recommend this book.  I read the book in one day and could not put it down, it was that moving.  I am attaching the book picture that you can click on to take you to the Amazon Kindle location.  My hope is that in some way this can be a wake up call for everyone on how this could be just the tip of the iceberg at this stage of the outbreak.  May God Bless and keep you safe…Sandy Jones

  1. I try not to watch a lot of news, it’s just too depressing. My hubby keeps me up to date on the important things. He also used to direct a PBS show where a doctor would talk about a certain topic each week. One day they were chatting and the doctor told him that a pandemic would be our downfall. This is eerily reminiscent of that conversation. I have read some of Preston’s work and can only think this would be a good book.
