We saw it in the theater. Remember that sneeze? I nearly ran out of there when someone coughed. I grew--good or bad, I guess that's for others to judge. But lately, I can watch a disaster movie, or The Walking Dead and notice only the social reaction to the monsters or the disease or the overwhelming snow.
So I thought I could now face this book. Reading happens at bedtime. Bet you can guess how this book blended into dreams. And since I listened as I read the Kindle with the Audible, that voice! Richard M. Davidson's voice. What a deep bass and excellent for the genre! Creepy and authoritative! What I learned is that my characters in my book were dressed properly to deal with their strains of disease. And I learned I never want to be anywhere near someone coughing!
If I was a germaphobe before Knowing this is nonfiction made this even more frightening. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago there was an Ebola scare. What a horrid disease! And this author did a poetic job of helping the reader to see it and feel it.
If you haven't read it yet, climb out of your hiding place and give it a try. Forewarned is forearmed as they say. Might as well get the Audible version to make it even more real. I will try to read more of his books now.

Full text of "THE HOT ZONE Richard Preston"
One of my sons read it, and told me the other day the book helped him decide on a career in medicine -- he's now in his sixth year of an M. He told me this the other day when we were talking Ebola. So I decided to read it. Preston is a good storyteller, and he recounts the appearance of Ebola in suburban Washington as though this real-life event were a thriller, as, indeed, it turned out to be.
I've read that Preston plans a new edition of the book, to correct what might be some overstatements in the course of an Ebola infection. I also wonder whether he will address the belief expressed in the Hot Zone that Ebola can be spread by airborne means. On the legal side, Preston has a good understanding of the law's inherent conservatism.
When military brass was trying to decide how best to confine the outbreak of Ebola at a facility housing research monkeys, the officers conclude that it is best to act first, before seeking legal advice. Once they acted, the lawyers could always defend the emergency measures taken as legal.
I chuckled when I read that, recognizing the inherent conservatism of a lawyer's advice. I enjoyed this book immensely. It gives insight into medical research, public health and military preparedness for a biohazard disaster.
Surprisingly, it appears we don't know much more about Ebola than what we knew in , when this book was published -- except that the virus still lives and is still capable of enormous destruction.
When the Ebola epidemic in Liberia, Siera Leone and Guinea was racking up death tolls daily, I read every news source I could find and logged the daily new cases and deaths as well as how many deaths involved healthcare professionals. The more I read, the less this virus made any sense. I kept adding questions to my list that were never answered by any mainstream news source. This was not just an armchair fascination from a safe distance.
I do truly care about all the people who died, who lost loved ones, and who suffered economic losses that will take years to repair. They also had radical changes to their traditions forced upon them in order to stop the spread of the virus through funeral and burial practices.
The Hot Zone
I can't repeat my questions here because no one likes a spoiler. Although he is telling a true story, the author has employed the style of literary nonfiction to make this a very readable, edge of your seat accounting.
Everyone needs to learn more about the way an outbreak is just a few viral transmissions away from an epidemic and a few plane rides away from a PANDEMIC.
