    1 thought on “Dancing Matrix: How Science Confronts Emerging Viruses

    1. Interesting to read a book about emerging viruses from 1993 and realize that 19 years later many but not all the details are out of date, but not know which ones. Certainly this book had an optimistic spin on an awful lot of the subject. But it got lost in the weeds way too often and went back and forth between stuff I knew and stuff I had trouble following. And it was also a bit repetitive.

    2. A must read for virus lovers. You really come away amazed at the "beauty" of viruses and what they can do and how they work. Beautiful read.

    3. Good intro. to emerging viruses. Takes some complex subjects and makes them very understandable. Some very interesting insights.

    4. I love this bookrtly due to the nostalgia factor (bought it when visiting Northwestern's campus as a high schooler).
