The epilogue is about doomsday scenarios in modern times from atomic bombs to 9/11 & the flu. I really dislike the Hard rock cafe winterfell he discusses the latter. Again, he uses ‘learn’ as if viruses & bacteria could think. He also ignores the fact that deadly organisms are such a minority that they can actually be looked upon as poor mutations. It’s not good to kill off your host, after all.I think I can pretty say that this book by Steven Johnson isn’t going to be for everybody. It tells the story of how several men tried to cope with and understand a massive outbreak of cholera in London during 1854. Yeah, riveting, right?

He also seems to think that a city-planet is a desirable goal. WTF?!!! We are becoming more urbanized, though. He does tie this nicely in with the Broad Street epidemic & show some of the Hard rock cafe winterfell we face from all sorts of mass effects biological & mechanical. He reaches pretty far & it’s not his area of expertise.
Overall, this would have been an excellent book if it had been about half as long. He tried to cover far too much territory & that led to a lot of repetition. It would probably have been better read as text where I could have skimmed more. As an audio book it was just painful toward the Hard rock cafe winterfell.Actually, it was. In addition to talking about the disease itself (which basically causes death by diarrhea), the book follows the quest of a London doctor named John Snow as he propels the nascent science of epidemiology into its own. Snow went door to door in what was largely considered a doomed neighborhood, gathering information about who died, what their habits were, and most importantly how they got their water. He was working on a theory
