Fauci, by Michael Specter, is well worth reading. We’ve all seen Dr. Anthony Fauci on the 6 o’clock news and, personally, I’ve grown to admire the man and his grip on the pandemic. I’ve looked forward to his reports, opinions and predictions.
Fauci, the book, tells the story of Dr. Fauci from childhood to his current position. Knowing his background and understanding the story of viral infections should be instrumental in getting you to wear your masks, wash your hands frequently and maintain social distancing.
Covid-19 should convince you that our nation needs an emergency preparedness plan to prevent future pandemics and, when necessary, treat those who are unfortunate enough to be infected. Your task is to convince our government that they need to establish that plan and not simply tell us to relax and not to worry.
WARNING – For those of you with anxiety disorders, expect that reading this book initially may actually increase your anxiety. Hopefully, the knowledge you gain while reading this book will, in the end, be worth the increased anxiety it provokes. It is truly eye opening and that’s a good thing. Better to know the enemy is coming and prepare tha;n live in the dark.
