"Science writing as detective story at its best." --Jennifer Ouellette, Scientific American

A New York Times Notable Book of the Year, a Scientific American Best Book of the Year, and a Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.

In this gripping account, David Quammen takes the listener along on this astonishing quest to learn how, where from, and why these diseases emerge and asks the terrifying question: what might the next big one be?
