This book will tell you what that will mean when the inevitable happens, and what we as a nation can and must do now to protect ourselves, our families, and the basic elements of our society that bioterrorism puts at risk.
You will also learn why the billions being spent to combat terrorism miss the mark when it comes to fighting microbial terror. It will show why biological terrorism is becoming so much more likely, and examines the challenges of government response to it.
The book you hold in your hands is a manifesto, urging each of us to prepare for the inevitable or pay a stupendous toll in human lives. It lays out a prescription for survival--for our nation, and for us all.
