"Should appeal to a wide readership. It should be read by those responsible for curriculum design for medical and public health schools, by all professional workers dealing with infectious diseases, by biomedical writers responsible for informing the public, and by those responsible for determining priorities for the funding of health programs and biomedical research and training." --The New England Journal of Medicine
"A fascinating and worrisome discussion....Due to the importance and general interest of the subject, readers at many levels of expertise will be fascinated by Emerging Viruses." --BioScience
