For those who could read between the lines, the censored news out of China was terrifying. But the president insisted there was nothing to worry about.

Fortunately, we are still a nation of skeptics. Fortunately, there are those among us who study pandemics and are willing to look unflinchingly at worst-case scenarios. Michael Lewis’s taut and brilliant nonfiction thriller pits a band of medical visionaries against the wall of ignorance that was the official response of the Trump administration to the outbreak of COVID-19.

The characters you will meet in these pages are as fascinating as they are unexpected. A thirteen-year-old girl’s science project on transmission of an airborne pathogen develops into a very grown-up model of disease control. A local public-health officer uses her worm’s-eye view to see what the CDC misses, and reveals great truths about American society. A secret team of dissenting doctors, nicknamed the Wolverines, has everything necessary to fight the pandemic: brilliant backgrounds, world-class labs, prior experience with the pandemic scares of bird flu and swine flu…everything, that is, except official permission to implement their work.

Michael Lewis is not shy about calling these people heroes for their refusal to follow directives that they know to be based on misinformation and bad science. Even the internet, as crucial as it is to their exchange of ideas, poses a risk to them. They never know for sure who else might be listening in.

Kenneth King”Friend had this book, and I read the first couple of chapter, then skimmed then skimmed through.

This book is nothing but an anti-Trump book, critical of how he handled it, ignoring the facts of how he shut down travel from china, then from europe and produced 3 vaccines in under a year, aside from the therapeutics to treat it. It does NOT go into how the success of various therapeutics like the Hydroxy-Chloroquine/zinc/vitamin D treatments and studies that showed success that I saw, and basically only stuck with the “worst case” immunologists without reaching out to those highly established immunologists who disagreed with the narrative.

If you hate Trump, this will confirm you bias., but there is is little fact in this book from what I saw that led me to believe there was any honesty in the author, and that he was not pushing the agenda”

C “This is a book that tells the true stories of a few different people that all have one thing in in common: their considerable knowledge about infectious diseases. The author describes events in each person’s life, and their history with the study of how infections can spread. You get to learn about each of their different personalities, what motivates them, and how their experiences and responsibilities over the course of their careers contributed to their expertise in the field of infectious disease research.

As the chapters switch between telling the different stories of these brilliant and determined people, you begin to see how they were each in positions to be uniquely prepared to understand what to do in the event of a global pandemic. It is remarkable to hear these stories of some of the most qualified people in the field, and how their advice and warnings were often ignored, even when they had so much experience with plans for preventing the spread of infections.

This book was both inspiring and disheartening. It is comforting to know that there are people that are so passionate about this science, and so courageous in their efforts to save lives; but it is frustrating that so many experts were ignored and so many people needlessly suffered as a result. I hope policy-makers can learn from this situation, and brilliant minds like the people in this book aren’t too discouraged to speak out in the future.”

RTM “As the COVID death toll approaches 600,000 in the US, it seems reasonable to ask how did it get so bad? Michael Lewis takes on this complex subject using his unique approach. He profiles several “maverick” doctors with government experience in public health who early on foresaw the potential scope of the COVID problem. They advocated swift and decisive action by government, using arguments based on good science and common sense. However, they encountered a wall of ignorance, apathy, and incompetence to a degree shocking in one of the world’s most advanced countries. The CDC especially comes across as an abysmal failure. As a result, our decentralized system of hospitals had to cope with the chaos, confusion, and mounting death toll. On the plus side, Lewis excels in taking the reader into the shoes of the “mavericks,” as they struggle to deal with politicians and bureaucrats unwilling or unable to learn the lessons from the 1918 global flu pandemic. Lewis’ most compelling character is Dr. Charity Dean, who risks her Calif State public health job to push for effective action. This book clearly shows the tragic costs of a public health issue being politicized to such an extent. On the negative side, Lewis spends an excessive amount of time (nearly half the book) introducing his main characters, and discussing their efforts to deal with previous public health problems. In addition, this book is not (and does not pretend to be) a comprehensive analysis of the COVID crisis in the US. For example, Trump’s role in the failure to contain COVID is only briefly discussed. My two main takeaways from this book are:
1) The Federal government’s failure to act effectively in Jan & Feb, 2020 to contain the virus doomed the US to fight a losing battle against an enemy that multiplied at an exponential rate;
2) Without drastic overhaul, the US public health system will not be ready for the next virus, which could be much more lethal.”
NativeCO “Even after having seen most of the documentary’s about pandemics, fictional dramas as well; and having read the books on 1918 flu and other plagues, I found this book fascinating. I think Michael Lewis fleshes out his characters like a novel might to make this book an interesting read. It is full of synchronicity and amazing facts related to the understanding of contagious disease and pandemic strategies utilized in the last year. The people nicknamed the Wolverines really are heroes and the entire story is woven like a top notch thriller. I too hesitated in deciding to read this-pandemic fatigue and all. But it puts an OMG factor into this historical time in our lives.
I am incredibly grateful for the brilliant minds and courage behind the science and also the randomness involved in great discoveries.”
