Hi Dan,

I would also recommend "The Ghost Map: The Story of London's Most Terrifying Epidemic-and How It Changed Science, Cities, and the Modern World"
by Steven Johnson.

This message originated outside of the City of McMinnville.

Hi Dan,

Here are a few I would recommend:

Barry, John M. The Great Influenza : the Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague in History. Viking, 2004.
Garrett, Laurie. The Coming Plague : Newly Emerging Diseases in a World out of Balance. Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1994. -- although older, it's very good and still being cited Quammen, David. Spillover : Animal Infections and the next Human Pandemic. 1st ed., W.W. Norton & Co., 2012.
