About the Original Book:
Barry unpacks the Great Influenza of 1918 to 1920 at the culmination of the First World War in America. He delves into the extraordinary journey of American medicine up until that point, and how the metamorphosis of scientific inquiry influenced the way the pandemic was handled across the globe. It’s 400 pages of terror and tenacity that’s carefully researched and intentionally down to earth—the statistics speak for themselves, no sensationalized content necessary. There are no victories over the 1918 pandemic, nor those that followed, yet there is much to learn that has never been more relevant for life in 2020.
